Planning is the top secret of successful people. There is no success without planning. Planning is emptying the mind from ideas on paper, and then studying it carefully to reach the best performance.
Planning is transferring dreams out of mind and putting it in implementation phase.
Brian Tracy taught us that we must take 20 minutes at least every morning to stay in special state of mind. In this state you should draw your visualization about yourself and your future, then implement this visualization in your life through this day actions.
Just dream and implement this dream in few organized steps. We called this operation: Planning.
The Basic Principles of Planning
- Spatial Dimension.
- Provide the Necessary Funding.
According to Brian Tracy recommendations you should determine your plan every morning. Of course this plan is huge but you can cut it into small pieces. So, start with yourself in huge plan and cut it into small pieces which can be achieved in months, weeks or days. When you find your missions can be done in your day and linked with the huge target, in this moment know that you are walking in the right way.
Watch yourself daily and asked about the results and its relation with achievement schedule. This was planning system.
Put your dreams/plans in a big paper without arrangement then rearrange them in descending way. Start with the most important and followed it by the important then the semi important and finally the less important.
The best and concentrated efforts should be for the most important plan. The other followed plan/dream comes in the next priority, and so on.
Planning and Cost
Of course, every plan has a particular cost. But in costing system you should arrange the total cost comparing with the most important plan and the less important plans. You should calculate the cost of every phase and put in mind making a cash reserve for it and also for the main plan.
Planning and Opportunities
In implementation way, you may meet an opportunity which meets your target but you don’t know exactly if this opportunity will reduce time and save money or not, I advise you to take the weapon of adventure and make a difference in your plan. I know that you may fail but also you may succeed and abbreviate a lot of time and money. If you failed you never lose because you will win new experience in your way. This experience differently will help you to make new plans which it will be better than the old one.
