We are always told that failure is fine. We can learn from mistakes, improve and carry on. But what if you fail on your BIG day, the day you are most expected to deliver?
Quite often, when a service/product is referred by a famous blogger/publisher or ranks high on Reddit/Hacker-news their website crashes because of a huge number of hits that day. This crash not only makes you lose your future customers but also gives them a negative first impression. In case they hear about you again from some other source next time, they might not turn up.
What if one day you get 20 times more customers?
What if your company gets a big proposal today?
Plan for the big day (when it’s about to come you will know that it’s coming; gut feeling?). Get ready and deliver that very day. Because some mistakes push you back a few years.
Someone rightly said that “it takes 20 years to become an overnight success” so that night you need to deliver.
And if a sudden rush stumped you, recover fast and deliver.
It’s all about delivering at right time. And nothing is more 'right time' than the Big day.
