How To Make A Plan Come Together – Just Like The A-Team
When I was a kid Saturday evenings were my favourite night of the week. It was because my two favourite T.V. shows would be on. The first was Knight Rider. I think that every boy who ever saw Knight Rider always wanted a KITT of his own!
I think secretly even now, the young men from my generation, despite the fact we’ve all grown up, we all still treat our cars as if it is our very own personal KITT. I actually have the KITT app on my iPhone which has the KITT voices and even the KITT dash! Will I ever grow out of it? Probably not! 😛
The other program was the A-Team. Who could ever forget about that crack commando unit that was sent to prison, for a crime they didn’t commit? When you had a problem, and you didn’t have anywhere else to go, you called the A-Team!
They worked together as a unit and each of the team had some unique skill that they brought to the table. It was because of each of those unique skills that they were such an unstoppable force and were able to combat and defeat all of their foes.
The combination of all those skills created four unshakeable pillars. Am I saying you should assemble your own crack commando unit? Well if you want to, but I’m talking about cultivating each of those skills so that you become an elite unit, all on your own.
Here are those skills:
1. Hannibal – The Man With The Plan (Who Liked It When A Plan Came Together)
Hannibal was the man with the plan. He was the leader who had the ideas. When there was a problem and they faced an intelligent foe, there was no doubt that Hannibal would come up with a plan smarter than his enemies. The others listened to him and no matter what he was up against he would be creative and think outside the box.
Do you have the skills to lead? Be a great mind that doesn’t think alike. Get a cigar as well to look really cool.
2. Face – The Man With The Charm (Who Got All The Ladies Too)
Face was the man who used his charm to acquire all the information that he from any situation. He knew all the right buttons to push so he could get the intel that would allow the team to formulate the right plan. He had charm, style and could pretty much convince anyone of anything. He could sell his story no matter where he was.
Are you able to sell yourself in the right way? Be a charming seller that doesn’t need to push. Hair that you can flick, is a bonus.
3. Howling Mad Murdoch – The Man With The Know-How (Who Was A Bit Nuts)
Murdoch was the man with the technical know-how and he also added the element of unpredictability. Whenever the A-Team needed any resources to support their campaign he knew exactly of how and where to get it. He wouldn’t just think outside the box, he would stamp on the box, tear it to shreds and then make something else completely that didn’t even resemble a box.
Do you know where you can get whatever it is that you need? Be resourceful and know where to look. Occasionally, just blow the box up!
4. B.A. Baracus – The Man With The Strength (Who Was Also Pretty Good Behind The Wheel)
When it came down to it B.A. was the warrior of the group. He was the man who would take the fight to his enemies. He could take a punch and then he could keep on coming. He had no fear (well, except flying) and was always ready to fight for those who needed his help.
Do you stand and fight or do you cower away? When you get knocked down, learn how to get back up. Wear some bling too!
Are you feeling like that elite commando unit yet? If not, here’s the trailer of the new A-Team movie to help!
