(It still applies. It’s still relevant 11 years later. What do you think.)

Navigating Around Life’s Predicaments (NALP)….???? What is it? How do you pronounce it?

It’s pronounced like nawlp. The AL is like Albany. Now you’ve got it. And yes, it is PLAN spelled backward.

My wife and I wrote this book based on our combined professional and personal experiences in dealing with the unexpected predicaments that our life journey has presented us with. We included insights into how other people have dealt with the question “What do you do when the Plan changes”. READER ALERT our book has a spiritual foundation spiritual and is motivational in nature. There are four cornerstones to NALPing. The other three cornerstones are:

· NALPers recognize and prioritize their Core Values and Intent.

· NALPers, when faced with the unexpected, assess or re-assess the factors associated with the predicament and make new choices benchmarked against their Core Values and Intent.

· NALPers chart a course of action toward a new objective and let go of the negatives of the past.

It’s important that you understand that NALP is more than just being the opposite of “plan”. NALPing is what you do when the plan changes. It’s a combination of life perspective and a process for moving forward in the face of the predicaments that we all face as we go from day-to-day workplace problems or as we navigate the relationship that help shape the people we become. It’s also how you navigate periods of tough economic pressure and business setbacks. NALPing is a positive and proactive approach to moving forward. It is adopting an attitude that individuals are meant to succeed.

NALPing = Dealing with predicaments and the unexpected. NALPers are easy to identify. NALPers want to know:

• Is this situation the result of something I should or shouldn’t have done?

• What components of the predicament are/were in my control?

• What components of the predicament are/were not in my control?

• What did I miss in my original planning process, so I don’t make the same mistake again?

• What lessons can be learned and used going forward?

• How do I block negativism and fear from paralyzing my progress?

• How does this predicament align with my core values and intent?

• How might I accomplish my intent another way?

Are you a NALPer?
