If you find yourself not progressing in your life it may be due to a lack of planning. Before you take another step, make a plan first. For most of us, we plan while in the process and at that point we are doing damage control which is not the same as planning. When we take a look at our lives, that gives us a chance to make deliberate changes. Areas of our lives include, our health, finances, family, jobs etc. Living is good and being in the moment is important, but if you feel you are stuck or not progressing then this is a good day to take a look at your life and begin to plan.
When beginning to plan, it is good to start with the end in mind. Decide where you want to end up and then work backwards from there. The following is an example of how to make a plan for where you want to end up.
Let's say you want to have a savings account that has $1200.
Where do you want to end up? With $1,200 in a savings account
Goal- Save $1,200
Set a date: One year from now
The plan: Save $100 every month
Steps needed: Make a budget that allows me to save $100 every month
Planning is intentional and over time, if you follow your plan, it will change your life. We encourage you to take a look at where you are at and begin to make to a plan and then stick to it.
