What are you planning?

by Rod Smith

Are you planning to get a great education? Do you want to travel the world? Perhaps you want to land a great job or buy a house. Are you planning, actively planning, these things?

You do know, I am sure, they won’t happen without you.

They won’t happen without the development of a blueprint.

Unless you sit down, plot, assess what you will need for the journey and what you will need to sacrifice in the immediate in return for what you want in the future, the future will be here before you know it and none of your plans will have come to fruition.

The upside of planning is that even if your plans don’t all work out as you’d hoped, something close or something better may greet you in the future.

The results of having no plan at all, or thinking and believing things will just happen or fall into place is that they usually don’t.

The default, that which will happen if you just go with the flow, which will always take the path of least resistance, will be a journey to a place of inertia, laziness, and a life of regret. 

Get planning, it’s worth it.

  1. You are so very correct! Often blueprints happen in our minds, and lack of communication, dedication, drive, or motivation to stick to the plan is to blame for dreams not coming true. Riding out the waves and staying the course is a hard thing to do, and it’s not for everyone… but those who have a goal and work everything else, that comes their way, into the plan achieve great heights. In one’s life it’s important to make sure that one has a plan and blueprint of their own. In a marriage, both must strive to achieve the same goals and weather the stay. Dedication, motivation, drive, and communication are key to achieving one’s dreams, together and individually.
