“Failing to plan = planning to fail.”
- Brent Hardesty
If you want to go to your friend’s house, you don’t go out the front door and stand on the sidewalk, hoping for a brisk wind to take you there. You make some preparations. You think about the meeting time, transportation, what you’re going to wear, and the route you’re going to take. You plan ahead.
Here’s a PLAN-AHEAD formula for your life:
P- Pray. Ask God for wisdom and direction.
L- List the things that need to be accomplished.
A- Acquire the information and resources you need to do the job.
N- Notice what others have done in similar situations.
A- Ask advice from some experts.
H- Heed your inner voice. Use caution if you feel uneasy.
E- Expect adversity and plan to overcome it.
A- Act decisively. Once you make your decision, go for it!
D- Do your best and leave the rest to God.
With a little preparation, you can work smarter and more effectively and worry less about what needs to be done.
Preparation before perspiration!
