Planning is winning. Just as breathing is living that is how vital planning is to any man’s life and any business endeavours.
Purpose is dead without a plan. It is planning that empowers purpose to deliver. Purpose is impotent without a plan. Every building begins with a plan, you don’t need a plan for a shannty but you do need a plan for any building of any value.
I have seen people talked about we have built these businesses. Business is a form of building, and that is why, just like ebery building requires a plan, every business requires a plan.
That is what is call “Business Plan” recently, I postulated a theory which stipulates, “You don’t grow BIG to manage well; You manage well to grow BIG”.
So the business that will be big tomorrow will be seen today in the quality of the structural plan that is engaged, it’s not tomorrow you would know it. It’s today that you will know it.
Most businesses today are victim of lack of planning or poor planning.
My two businesses dead as a results of poor planning in my early stage of entrepreneurship.
” If you are not futuristic in your approach, you can’t earn a future”, I am not just talking about planning, I am talking about futuristic planning.
My heart breed when I see how most people live their lives like animals, anything that comes goes, perheps is the will of God, of course God can not wish less for you, it is your lack of adequate preparation or planning that allows that to happen.
It is good management planning therefore that guarantees good results. Whatever farm that is not well managed is bound to fail, the quality of the seed not withstanding, it is the quality of the management that determines the quality of results.
Therefore, management skillis key to determing the level of results that any organization will ever command.
Planning is the cheapest way to advert wastage. So energy can be wasted, time can be wasted, of course most of us today have wasted a lot of time and many are wasting time without knowing. Any time wasted, not well managed can not be redeemed. Anything can be wasted when there is no plan.
So planning is a way of conserving energy. Just like you are aware life not well managed is wasted, time not well managed will be trashed, money not well managed will be squandered. So from purpose you move into planning, from planning. You section your plans into time slots and then set, go the pursuit and planning circle.
Purpose, Planning, Programme, Pursuit and Planning without programming is living in the woods, lost in the wilderness and programming without pursuit is dinning with the dead.
Prayers alone, I think will make you a burden to God. It is prayer with proper planning that makes you a co – labourer with God.
“Life us in Phases; Men are in Sizes” David O. Oyedepo.
Only those that sit down to plan today will SHINE tomorrow, where there is no planning, Purpose is bound to be defeated.
I hope, you will take note of these things and not joust have them as one of those things that come by.
To be a planner is to be a visionary. The power of vision, looking into the future.
To have a blissful living, a life of merriment and achievements, then you must be a better planner.
Achievements are never made without hardworks and self discipline.
An athlete who wants to win medals must subject his or her self to vigorous training, denying himself or herself some particular diets and feeding on special ones that will assist him or her to win.
A hunter who wants to kill many wild animals must truly learn how to be a masksman and to be braved.
A farmer who wants many bags of food stuff from his produce must really farm very well.
Same applicable to other fields of endeacours.
If you must succeed in life, then you must be spiritually, mentaly, academically, financially sensitive and alert. Your alertness about the things around you is very important for you to end well.
Money does not make any man rich, except financial knowledge. Knowledge is power they say, except it is put to use, if not it becomes wasted kbowledge.
Total commitment to your plans brings about fulfilments of goals.
As at the time of planning, it looks discouraging because that is the catapillar stage that requires hardwork and full engagement, it requires your time, it requires your energy,it requires your resources, all these and many more must be put in place for you to be a star.
The time of flowering is a sign of bearing fruits and it us a time of expectation full of happiness and enjoyments.
The time you spend, the resources you spend, energy burned, talents and knowledge applied are never in vain, they are investments that is expected to yeild bumper harvest at the appointed time.
God’s words says in Habakkuk 2:1-3 “I will stand upon my watch and set me upon the tower, and I will watch to see what he will say unto me,and what I shall answer when I am reproved. And the Lord answered me, and said wite the vision and make it plain upon the tables, that he may run that readth it. For the visuon is yet for an appointed time, but at the end it shall speak, and not lie; though it tarry, wait for it, because it will surely come; it will not tarry.
The power of vision is very crucial in a man’s life. Planning brings about the fulfilment of vision, but without vision there can never be planning. Therefore it is expected for anyone who wants to be successful in the business world to give much attention to learning from those who are already ahead of him or her in any area of professionalism.
A man of vision, is that man with an unshakable focus, unshakable faith, unshajable determination, he is ever excited in whatever he or she does.
While others are seeing failure, disappointment, he keeps moving navigating althrough the huldles because he sees clearly with the power of vision and adequate planning.
