Article 3: What’s Your Plan?

Most of us believe we have a plan.  A plan on how we are going to get to work, where we want our future to go, as well as other simple things like what is for dinner.  However, none of these plans would ever come together without action.  Once you take action you begin to set things in motion which will bring about the desired results.  However, as we all know the best laid plans always have detours, potholes and unwanted people in them. 

What to do, what to do, what to do?  Well, the best thing you can do is to be open minded and view these setbacks and distractions as a possible new direction.  Sometimes we think we know the best way to go but running fast doesn’t always mean you finish first because there are always multiple ways to get from the starting point to the finish line.

Those mildly detracting people can be a good resource if we take their comments with a “guarded” open mind.  Many times I have found that their derailing thoughts actually produce better solutions when I strip down their comments and can see them in a more constructive light.  Now that is never their intent but some of my best ideas come from my virtual enemies and they are never the wiser.  In fact, I should probably send them flowers, a check or gift card each time they speak to me because it just brings more prosperity into my life.  However, that would make them suspicious and might dry up one of my idea lines so I’ll save the money and apply it towards those who are apart of my plan and deserve a reward.

Here are a few steps which will allow you to develop a plan, become an effective manager of that plan, and allow you the freedom to work it. 

You will experience abundance in everything you set your hand to once you:

  1. Identify your purpose
  2. Create your plan
  3. Remove distractions
  4. Eliminate time wasters
  5. Work the plan!

If you do the above your success will be one day closer than it was yesterday!
