Get a plan!

Here’s one of my favorite quotes: 

“The trouble with most people is that they think with their hopes or fears or wishes rather than with their minds.” – Will Durant

So true. So often we move forward entirely convinced that we need a particular  outcome to happen in our careers or lives but do not devote that same energy and passion towards the steps for making that happen.  You can see it most blatently in politics these days where the politicians are convinced they must be seen as the champions of a particular cause but have little or no understanding of the kind of plan that will make it happen.  They can’t even remember the history of last year let alone the economics of Stalin’s time for example.  My hope for the next election cycle is that we put people in office who are committed to a plan for success that is based on the historically proven principles of the past. 

“A goal without a plan is merely a wish.” – Antoine de Saint Exupéry

Folks, the power of the plan is all around us. Take These Guys for example, New York Task Force One. They have a plan. They practice the plan and they practice being successful.  Look at the results (click the picture):

When we are passionate about successful outcomes we need to #1) have a proven plan and #2) be passionate about it.  It works!  CLICK HERE TO SEE THE VIDEO
