Planning Ahead or Planning Now
Planning ahead is one of the hallmarks of
someone who has their life together, but it can
still receive a blow from those who love
planning but are horrible at following through. It
is necessary to follow through on any goals
which you have, or you will not make progress
on them at all. Unfortunately, the perpetual
planners, as I like to call them, can really make a
lifestyle out of what they are going to do, and
never really make any progress on doing those
things. What are some of their excuses and how
can you avoid these pitfalls?
Many perpetual planners make outside
circumstances the excuse for not getting
anything done, and this is unfortunate, because
ANY outside situation or external reason can be
completely accounted for, and not just before the project begins, but it can always
be accounted for while the project is progressing. Blaming lack of progress on
these external reasons is simply inexcusable.
In addition to this, progress takes a backseat when surrounding circumstances are
allowed by the individual to take precedence over their individual decisions.
There must be a knowledge or understanding that your individual decisions are
more valuable and stronger than those of another and of anybody else, no matter
how much you admire or respect them. Otherwise, again, progress can be stopped
by outside circumstances quite easily.
It involves using new muscles in your body and in your mind, so to speak. It
involves thinking and performing in a different way than you ever have performed
before. To stick with your guns and your decisions and see them through yourself
is not difficult, per se; it just requires a lot of focus and determination and self
discipline. It involves fortitude and looking out for yourself. It involves self
respect, because that is required to continually value your own plans above the
advice or urgent pleading of others.
