If I told you that we are going to travel to Egypt the next Wednesday in a trip for 5 days, what will you do once you receive this good news?
Of course if you ok to go with me you will prepare you bag, mobile, camera, laptop (if you love to stay in touch), pocket money and sure your passport. Then tell me that you are ready, right or not?
Well, simply this is the planning.
Indeed I don’t know why people ignore planning. As I explained in this simple example, this will be the planning in simple words.
Unfortunately, a wide range of people are thinking that the planning is the mission of huge government organizations and companies not the individual life too. So, most of them don’t care about this word and live with others normal, boring and routine life.
My surprise to you now is that you are planning every day but without feeling. How is that?
Simply, when you wake up at morning by the alarm clock this was because you prepared it the day before. And when you get out of your flat at 7 o’clock you prepared yourself to reach the work on the right time. So, you go out early to take the bus of company. But in your mind you prepare yourself to take a public transport if you couldn’t take the bus of company. Not only but you may prepare yourself to take a taxi for reaching the job in the time.
Again, simply this is the planning.
Not only, but in the previous example you gave yourself Plan A (Company Bus) and Plan B (Public Transport) and Plan C (Taxi) and may be more.
I know that we do this in automatic way without concentration but what about doing that in every side of life?
Not only that but making more than one plan to achieve our target. One of great men in this life said: “the successful people in this life who has a Plan B”. Well, what about Plan C, D and more? It will be nice to feel your dreams near of your hands.
So, what is The Planning?
Planning is a straight line between when you are and when you want to be. It is the line between reality and dream. On this plan we draw steps and each step has a small task. This small task should be done in a certain period of time. Success percentage is the percentage of achieved tasks comparing with planned.
There is no simple example like this for planning. One day I read a sentence about planning. It is very good sentence in fact. It says: “Planning is the first birth of your dream. Achievement is the big party”.
Now I hope you reach to the big party and me, too.
