No matter what type of plan we are talking about ~ here is some great advice by Chris Gardner, AARP's Pursuit & Happiness Ambassador - A Plan Must be:
- Committed To
So many times, we do not successfully plan out our plan of action, marketing campaign, or our daily activities, then we sit back and wonder why the plan isn't working! ! Having the plan in your head isn't enough! You must commit to placing it on paper - it is more like reinforcing your idea's, your plan of action, the steps you are going to take to accomplish your ultimate goal.
One of the key things that entrepreneurs need to do is plan! Many times, we entrepreneurs shoot straight from the hip! We know what we want to do, so we just move forward and do it! Unfortunately, we are really setting ourselves up for failure. I am not implying that all quick decisions and actions will result in failure of the objective, but when you are taking on a major project and want to change a few things, planning it all out just ups the % of success two-fold.
