Planning is probably one of the key essentials to living a productive life and will allow you to unlock your potential in many ways. I find that when I am organized with my thoughts, and have written down what it is I want to accomplish for the day, I have a much better day. I feel like I have accomplished something and that I am in control of my priorities.
A few great quotes regarding planning:
"If you fail to plan, you plan to fail."
"Every 15 minutes spent planning can save 2 hours in wasted productivity."
I know I have read those quotes from somewhere. Possibly Brian Tracy.
It is so very true isn't it? If you want to accomplish a goal, you will be more effective at obtaining this goal if you spend time planning to make it happen. You will never get anything completed if you do not plan for it. Spend time planning your day the night before. By sitting down for a minute and planning out how you spend your time allows you to take control of your time. We all only have 24 hours in a day. It is how effective we are at using our time that will determine how quickly we achieve our goals and work on our plans.
If you have been putting something off for awhile because you just haven't had time, I challenge you to ask yourself if it is a priority in your life right now. If it is not a priority, take care of your priorities first. You will feel better about yourself if you have confidence that you are taking care of all your priorities and have a solid, well thought out plan in place.
The most productive and successful people often have a well thought out plan and written agenda for their daily activities.
