Ready. Aim. THEN Fire!



Welcome to Episode 47 of the Autism Parenting Secrets. 

This week, Cass and Len explore the simple concept of: Ready. Aim. Fire. 

It’s a universally accepted sequence that gets results. 

But parents of a child often don’t follow this sequence.

Often, parents start taking action (Fire) before they’re prepared (Ready) and before they have clear targets (Aim).

The sequence matters because there are always limited resources: time, energy, and money.

And to make the most of those resources, it’s important to be effective.  That means taking informed action towards a clear, specific target.

So “Fire. Ready. Aim.” doesn’t work. 

Neither does: “Fire. Aim. Ready.” 

And “Aim. Ready. Fire” falls short as well.

Tune in now to learn more!
