One way to have a prosperous New Year is to simply have a plan. I just brought a new 2016 Executive Planner to help keep me on my toes. It has a separate section for a plan that I will soon fill out as I evaluate the New Year that I want to have. Simply put, a plan is critical to anything you want to achieve.

Even though people know the importance of a plan, many people simply will not take the short amount of time to create one. For example, today, I was in the gym and overheard a guy say “I don’t know what I’m going to do today.” Then he went on to talk to his buddy about something to fill up his time.

This example, illustrating the lack of structure from our gym pal, will enable you to waste a great amount of time in your life. However, we who are successful in anything, need to have a predetermined plan of action for our days.

A plan sets you in a direction.What direction?  The direction you want to go. A plan puts you in action. What action?  The actions you will need to take to reach your goal. A plan allows you to grow. Grow how?  Every step to your plan permits you to become the person that you need to be to complete that step. As you can see, a plan is everything to us.

So, now that the year is almost done, we should be done also. We should be done with mediocrity. We should be done with wasting time. We should be done with staying the same and not growing into the person we want to be. Make the choice, and make the plan.
