Five Minute Friday: Plan

The word for today is plan.


Goals a great. SMART goals are better. But even the best of goals will fall flat without a plan. Without a plan, the goal is just a dream. It’s a someday-that-would-be-nice fantasy. Plans put feet to a goal. It’s a path. It’s direction. It is the 1, 2, 3 and the A, B, C.

Good planning will make or break a goal before the first step is made. Some people plan from A to Z. That is considering what must happen first and then second to get closer to the goal. Others plan from Z to A. That is thinking in the same way, but backards. Z to A is best if the “A” is hard to find.

Brainstorm ideas–even crazy ideas–when thinking through a plan. Some of the best plans are creative and out-of-the box. They need to be doable. Regardless, if there is a goal, a good plan must go with it.

What goal do you have that needs a plan?

I have a personal goal that I need a plan to make that goal realized. I need someone to help me work on a plan. Sometimes getting advice is a first step in working on plan. Getting feedback on your plans are excellent as well. Plan to succeed by planning.
