Retired Army Reserve Lt. Colonel Weinstein, aka the Health Colonel, enlivened and inspired the members and guests of the Dade Association of Health Underwriters with his Hurricane Wilma inspired keynote on November 8, 2005 at the 94th Aero Squadron Restaurant in Miami, Florida on the topic “Nine Ways to Put Action in Your Action Plan”.

“Hurricane Wilma was an excellent opportunity to evaluate much more than just the level of preparedness for the Hurricane Wilma. I allowed Wilma in all her fury and passion to inspire me to look farther and deeper, to look at life and how I approach various meaningful areas of my life. Wilma deepened the ability to look much more closely at what is important in life.”

Retired Army Reserve Lt. Colonel Weinstein, aka the Health Colonel, enlivened and inspired the members and guests of the Dade Association of Health Underwriters with his Hurricane Wilma inspired keynote on November 8, 2005 at the 94th Aero Squadron Restaurant in Miami, Florida on the topic “Nine Ways to Put Action in Your Action Plan”. Colonel Weinstein is a speaker, writer and a military-style beach boot cam instructor on Fort Lauderdale Beach in South Florida and has been featured on many television networks to include the History Channel and Fox Sports Net.

Weinstein had some thought provoking questions for his audience that day when it comes to preparing an After-Action-Report, whether you’re analyzing a natural disaster or a business mistake:

  •     Other than death, what is the worst case scenario?
  •     Did I do everything reasonably possible to prepare for a worst-case scenario and reduce the risk to life or limb?
  •     Is how I prepare for a potential catastrophe indicative of how I prepare for long-term life catastrophes in the areas of health, disease, finances, relationships, career, education and the higher purpose of life?
  •     Can I find the courage to openly evaluate all areas of my existence in order to take charge and then design my life so that I lead it to the fullest benefit of others and myself?
  •     Can I focus on the word action if I should ever need my Action Plan?

The nine ways to put action in your action plan according to Lt. Col. Weinstein are:

1.    Prepare a list of tasks and subtasks that need to be done.

2.    Include people and things that are necessary.

3.    Post the “what can be done better” report in plain view and tell others about what you are doing.

4.    Crank up your determination meter and overcome inertia.

5.    Beware of complacency.

6.    Go around, through or over all obstacles.

7.    If you don’t feel like you can do it, pretend!

8.    Be aware of that voice inside of you.

9.    Fight victim mentality.

“An Action Plan is no good without action. It’s like a Ferrari with no engine—it looks good on the outside, but it won’t win a race with a snail. Without a plan, you could end up like that tree in Fort Lauderdale—floating down Main Street under someone or something else’s power, wondering what happened to your roots, your future, perhaps your life.” - Lt. Col. Weinstein
