Plans Is Nothing, Planning Is Everything
This was something Dwight D Eisenhower said and you can find several quotes from well known people through the history. Why am I writing this? Well, yesterday I talked about setting the stage. Or that you have to find out where you are before trying to plan where to go.
Have you done that yet? If not, please read that post once more and do that before trying to create a plan. Your plan might be the best possible, but perhaps, if you are unlucky, directs you in the wrong way.
When you are set it’s time to take the next step. Make a plan. You have to find out the path that will take you from where you are to where you want to be later on. This is something that’s easier said than done. You will find that there are several roads to success. All pending on your state of mind, your knowledge and how you del with all the influences that affect you from external persons and media.
I can’t tell you exactly how to create your ultimate plan here in this post. The only one that can do that is you and only you. And I can promise you that you won’t be able to create THE PLAN the first time you try.
What I can promise though is that if you don’t plan, you won’t get anywhere. Then plan you create will have to be changed several times during the path to your end goal.
And that brings me back to the heading; Plans in nothing, planning is everything! It’s not the plan in it self that are the most important here. Is the ongoing planning. Time after time you have to stop, identify where you are, compare with your end goal and see if you are on the path or if you have to oversee you plan and do changes that will redirect you towards your goal.
Plans are of little importance, but planning is essential
This is one more quote that emphasize what I’m trying to explain here. Don’t forget this if you want to grow your business and bring it to the point you want it to be.
In my next post I will illustrate how you can use a very good planning tool to mitigate the obstacles you can identify in forehand and also some that will come without warning. And that tool is something you already have.
