If I were to tell you that I can give you the life you’ve always wanted, am sure you would still be skeptical (even if I was all able). Your mind would be lingering with questions such as ‘how?’ and ‘why me?’. Of course you would be interested but still a bit skeptical because you can’t be convinced by just words. If I, however, took a bit of time to show you a clear, well thought out and practical plan, you would start believing me. And if the plan shows you how everything comes together and how you fit in to the plan, you would definitely want to be on board. It would be easier to believe in the plan more than in my words, right?
Plans are that important. I know how exciting a goal/dream/desire can be and yet it’s achievement requires more than this excitement; You still need a plan, otherwise the dream may remain just that – a dream.

Sometimes we assume the importance of a plan and yet well laid out plans are important for a goals lifestyle. Plans are important because committing to a goal also introduces a number of challenges, distractions, discouragements, obstacles…you name them. Planning gives you a chance to overcome some of these hindrances ahead of time. Planning also helps you be prepared for the unavoidable hindrances and thus increases the chances of achieving a goal.

A goal worth achieving deserves a well thought out plan and today’s post is a challenge to take some quality time on a plan – to either develop a new plan for a goal or revise one of your working plans. When you got a good plan, you will not only know about ‘how’ to make your goal a reality but also have an idea of ‘when’ the dream shall come true.
