I was delighted to “win” the Property Entrepreneur Board Strategy Day. A lovely reassuringly heavy glass award that means even more due to the quality of the people and presentations I was “up against”.
The reason I put the “win” and “up against” as I do is that these terms are not really representative of the situation. So actually nothing is won yet, this was validation of a solid start to the year. Also the wonderful thing about the PE Board @propertyentrepreneur_ is that we work together, competition is almost conspicuous by its absence!
So why am I pleased then? Aside from the little ego tickle I am pleased because I feel in great shape for the year, surrounded by a great team at T5 and SPP, as well as UKPA and with a great group at PE at all levels. I am also pleased because I know a lot of work has been done already to get where we are, work that will come in valuable this year and next.
This is because it is not the plan, but the process of planning that is important. No plan survives contact with the enemy, but the work that has gone into the plan allows you to quickly make another, know already all the variables/ situation.
