Think of your plan as an evaluation tool. The process begins as you gather information, set goals and create a vision for your professional or personal endeavor.
The process continues as you enter the planning stages where projections and goals are implemented, measured and updated.
The planning process never ends.
Consider planning as your steering wheel on the path to success. Sometimes the road will be bumpy, curvy and uncertain. This is good, it will make you pay closer attention, focus more carefully and watch for the unexpected and early warning signals.
With continued and proper planning you’re more likely to do what you intended with conviction, instead of veering off course by a spur of the moment decision.
