Power of Planning


Planning is winning. Planning is the secret behind the fulfillment of a dream. It’s a way to conserve energy and avert wastage. It’s a design of step-by-step approach to accomplish a set goal. It’s the ordering of one’s priority in a bid to accomplishing a given task.

No one succeeds by accident. Shallow men think of luck, but great men think of cause and effect.

“Just any dummy can succeed if he cares to know what it takes.”-Zig Ziglar.

It takes sound planning to make a success of your business endeavor.

What is it that makes a great plan? If you must have the best product, you must identify the raw materials for it. No one reigns without the use of the brain. It’s the use of the brain that establishes the reign of a man. Every gain is a result of the use of the brain. It’s the use of senses that makes a star.

If planning is designing a logical and rational approach to accomplishing a given task. It’s thinking and reasoning.

Reasoning. The reasoning is the principal raw material for planning. To reason means to engage in logical, critical, and analytical thinking.

Every great planner must be a great thinker because the principal raw material requires for planning is reasoning. That is strategic thinking.

Life is practical, not mystical. We have to produce a practical approach to make the most of our adventure on earth. A mystical approach will lead to a miserable end.

The principal raw material is strategic thinking, which is called reasoning. And the engine room for planning in the brain. Strategic thinking cumulating in strategic planning.

If you’re not committed to mental work, you would end up doing menial work. Make your brain work, even if it sweats. Make it work, it will improve and you will be the envy.

It’s brain work that makes things work. Everything great begins with brain work. It’s not cheap, it’s real work.

Spirituality is not against reasoning; it enhances the quality of your reasoning capacity because you now have a mind transplant (a mind of Christ). The prodigal son called himself to a meeting.

Plan today and you will play tomorrow. Play with planning today and you will fail flat tomorrow.

If you can think enough, what you have is enough. Every time Jesus proffers a solution, it was with what in their hands. If you want things to work, get started at the beginning. The best place to begin is the beginning.

Information. All pieces of information gather from here and there is to enhance the quality of our thinking process and come out with high-quality decisions for making the most of our assignments.

Your true image is your product, not your posture. We are so bothered about what people think without checking out what it takes.

God created the earth with strategic thinking. God first created the light because the light is the baseline for every other thing. Creation is a product of strategic planning. Anything you are creating will require strategic planning as the baseline. Get back to Genesis chapter one, you will see strategic planning. It’s so sequential, you will see one after the other and one leading to the other.

Before He brought the plant in, He already created a firmament that will sustain the evaporation of water which will result in rain. He did everything one after the other. He didn’t think of water after creating fish.

Organization structure in Exodus 18. There is an organizational structure that will help you secure your future. Many have great plans but are not committed to them. If you break the rule, nobody will be interested in obeying it. Because people only hear what you say, but end doing what you do. If you are a breaker of the rules, don’t expect men to buy it for a penny.

I don’t care what that job is, maybe a little kiosk, let it have a great plan and high-quality plan going into it. It’s not enough to have a business; it’s important to have one that is growing and has a life in it.

  1. The best laid plans fail with the first contact with the enemy. I don’t know who said this first, but it is the truth, when your plans are rigid. The way to win, whether in war, business or life, is to:
    1. Know where you’re going, have a ultimate objective,
    2. Develop a strategy to achieve that objective,
    3. Create plans to implement the strategy, and
    4. Be flexible with your plans.

    1. 🙂You’ve made a wonderful contribution, Rocky. I’m also a fan of flexibility, I suggest having a plan B incase plan A fails to deliver. Also, planning is a continuous process, as one goal is accomplished, we create another plan…. We plan till we draw our last breath. Thanks for your valuable input. God bless you.

  2. 💜 Excellent Stuff; just a Word of Caution against Rigid, Inflexible “Planning”…it’s NOT!!! Quitting to Switch to a Contigency in a Fluid, Flexible “Plan”; it is Foolhardy to Continue to Bang Heads Against Brick Walls when The Original Plan is Clearly NOT WORKING!!!
