You’ve got to have a plan. A plan is a map, a guide, a target, a focus, a routine, a signpost, a direction, a strategy. It says that you are going somewhere, do something and be somewhere. A plan indicates you’ve had a bit of a think about your business and aren’t just waiting for something to turn up. Or, not even thinking about it. Work out what it is you want to do, plan it, work out the steps to take to achieve your business goals and get on with it. If you don’t plan your plan, it will remain a dream.
What happens if you don’t have a plan? You just reinforce to yourself, your sense of being ‘not in control’. Once you have a plan, everything else falls into place and the logical steps to achieve the plan also become available.
A plan isn’t a dream – it is something you intend doing rather than something you want to do. The plan also means you have thought through how you’re going to do it.
However, the plan doesn’t always mean that you have to stick to it, follow it or obey it – the plan is always up for review, for improvement and for changing as and when you need to. The plan shouldn’t be too rigid, as circumstances change, you change, your plan will also change.
“Plans are nothing; planning is everything” Dwight D Eisenhower
