Action plans are great until they stop you from acting.
What have you been planning for that you actually haven’t started putting into effect?
Being a good planner can be a huge personal and corporate asset, but at some point you’ve got to remember that planning has to stop, and implementing what you’ve planned has to start.
Are you stuck in a replay of planning to do something and not actually doing it?
You plan to launch your business, come up with new ideas, but don’t actually launch. You plan to lose weight but don’t start exercising. You plan a vacation and don’t go. The list could go on!
Being a good planner can be a HUGE personal and corporate asset, and some people could definitely use a bit more of it in their lives.
In order to create the life that you want, you sure need a plan. But we tend to get stuck in the planning process – when and how we will make things happen, as if we are waiting for the perfect moment and waiting to be ready.
At some point, you’ve got to remember that planning has to stop and implementing what you have planned has to start.
The purpose of planning is to move you forward. If you don’t move forward by implementing, the planning becomes an unnecessary strain.
What do you want to achieve this year?
What do you want to accomplish by the end of this month?
Be stubborn about your goals, and flexible about your methods.
- Stop overthinking it. Don’t be too scared to start, because you already started by planning.
- Keep in mind that the more time you spend planning doesn’t necessarily make you more prepared.
- Stop waiting for the perfect time. Stop waiting to be ‘ready’. Things get done when you ‘do’ them.
- Be time conscious. Decide what’s more important.
- Eliminate the clutter from your life and business.
And for future reference..
Don’t be hell-bent on sticking to The Plan, even when it doesn’t work. Be flexible.
I hope this helps you step on the gas.
It’s a new week. Get into action!
