Power Play: Play the tape through to the end

Power Players always think about how the plays they make are going to end. They play the tape through to the end.

Even though they know that it may not always go exactly to plan, they still have a pretty decent idea of what might happen.

They scope out the scenarios and they prepare mentally for whatever might come their way. This is a trademark Power Player move.

Knowing how the roads will diverge and where each road ends is incredibly useful when making the right decision.

Every action has a reaction and every decision had a consequence. Power Players always remember that rarely does anything happen in isolation and a chain reaction of events can take a project or a business down a whole new road – one that can be unplanned for and even treacherous.

Play the tape through to end and have a loose plan in your head for what to do next. You’ll be amazed how powerful this will make you.
