This is the first part of a three-part blog series for business continuity and emergency planning. In this first part, we’ll look at how to prepare for a contingency, such as a power outage or a natural disaster, and then consider how the business continuity plan needs to continue and grow when things go south.
There are a handful of other posts in the series, but these are the most important. You can check them out at the bottom of the page.
If you’re running a business, or working for a company that has one, then you need to have a business continuity plan. A business continuity plan is a document that you create to document exactly how your business functions during an emergency. A plan needs to be accurate and up to date so that it’s ready to go when things like a power outage or a natural disaster happen.
Business continuity plans also need to be organized and include everything you have on hand at all times that could possibly come in handy. A plan should have a master list of all important information, and it should be organized by category. For example, you might have a master list of all your accounts, how much money you have, your inventory, and the rest of your paperwork. You should also be able to access that list from anywhere in the world using a computer that you have on hand.
Journaling is a great way to make important information easily available to others. It also makes you more efficient. Because you’re constantly asking yourself, “What do I need to know right now?” Journaling helps you organize your thoughts, and it’s a great way to remember things long after you’d forgotten them.
Journaling is about more than just making notes. It is also about being able to make notes that are instantly accessible when needed. It is also about making sure you are keeping yourself organized. Even if a few things are always important, it is good to be able to have a list of things you need to do.
Journaling can be a lot of work, but you can still make it work. If you are like most people, you probably take notes for a few hours every day. I like to take a notebook along with me on trips. I just write down what I do and what I think. I then put it back in the journal once I get back to my hotel room.
There are many ways to make journaling work. I use a notebook with my name on it to keep notes on things like my daily routines, meetings, and thoughts about the day. I also keep a list of things I need to do in the next day. This is useful when having meetings when you are out of the office, but it also works for things like travel, home repairs, and other things that you need to do.
This helps me stay on track because it helps me identify things that I need to do and then I have to do them. For example, my list of things to do in the next day is a list of things that I need to do. It’s not a list of things that I can do because I can’t. I have to do the things that I think I can do, but when I don’t then it doesn’t really help me do them.
I think a lot of people are afraid to schedule time for specific things that they need to do, because they think it might get them fired. However, I think that the best way to stay organized is to schedule time for things that you need to do, and then you just do it. I have a calendar for planning events and things that I have to do, and then I schedule things that I am going to do that day.
