To make the most of your life, you need to plan your work and work your plan. These two go hand in hand and you have to be willing to do both before you maximize your potentials. Good planning alongside hard work will lead you to the land of your dreams.
I have seen instances of people who all they do is plan, but I need to tell you that it doesn’t end there, you can’t just say I have plans; I plan to do this, I plan to do that, I plan to go back to school, I plan to begin my business, I plan to put forward my business proposal, it’s not just enough to plan, you can’t just plan and not do anything about it, you can’t just plan, then sit back and expect things to work themselves out, you have to plan adequately, plan accurately, plan properly, and then you work it out, you work your plan.
You have to work out whatever your plans are, you need to roll up your sleeves and get to work. Plan your work, and then work your plan, but it is still important that you plan.
Plan your work, and prepare your work by writing down your objectives, goals, and aspirations, then you need to identify what needs to be done to work it out, because it’s not just enough to write them down, writing down your plans and planning your work does not translate to success, it does not translate to accomplishment until you work out your plan. Identify the resources you will need, identify the people you will need to complete the task and achieve your goals – a network of friends, family, and associates, then you should set timelines and target dates, and afterwards, go all out and begin work, roll up your sleeves and get to work. After you have planned your work, then work your plans, follow it by all means, and achieve all activities that relate to it.
I wish you the very best in everything you do. Go forward and take charge of every good thing that has your name written all over it. Plan your work, but above that, work your plan.
