Some people have said to me that planning is restrictive and makes them feel caged. I know for some of us Benjamin Franklin’s quote that says, 'If you fail to plan, you are planning to fail' is just really a quote or mantra and nothing more but for me, it rings true. I have experienced both sides of it and can say from experience that whenever I fail to plan, I end up with a result that is below excellent. At other times, I am just lucky to get it right. This means that 99.9% of the time things don’t quite turn out as well as I really want them to, simply because I have failed to plan.
Planning is one thing and acting on your plans is another kettle of fish altogether. What happens most times is that people put plans together but never act on them. Then they come back to say to you that, ‘Leave that planning matter please, it doesn’t work. I have tried it many times. How can it work if you do not work on it? It has no hands and feet; it is just something nicely written or captured on paper or your device, as the case may be.
In this week's episode of Life Lessons, I talk about the importance of planning towards the goals you want to achieve.
