Should you be an optimist or pessimist as a private investigator, process server or security guard?
I say be a big-picture optimist and a detail pessimist.
So have a back-up plan!
The Full Lesson:
That means, I am confident I am going to solve the case. I just know I’m gonna’ find the skip, get the dirt on a background checks or get good video on surveillance.
But… I imagine the small tactical things may go wrong. So, the lead I get on the skip’s address is going to have the wrong house numbers, the courthouse records I need aren’t going to be available online or the person I’m following is going to turn the “wrong” way when they first pull out of their driveway.
Note: If you’re an experienced private Investigator or you’ve gotten my Investigator’s Ultimate Guide to Surveillance, then you know what I mean about a subject of your investigation tuning the wrong way out of their driveway!)
That means you need to be prepared for the “details” of your case to go sideways. Have a “Plan B” to get over the speed-bump in your case and continue on to a successful conclusion!
In the meantime, this is Larry Kaye reminding you to do the right thing, even if it’s the hard thing.
