You Need An Action Plan
First let me repeat that heading for effect…YOU NEED AN ACTION PLAN!
Have you ever wondered why some people seem to have everything run so smoothly while others never seem to get anywhere?
Do you hate the detail and would rather get on with things moving towards the result that you see in your mind?
Action plans are what I affectionately label an evil necessity. I am not a detail man, but I am finding that over time, I am training myself to become one.
If you are like me, I used to get frustrated beyond comprehension with having to sit down and plan what I was going to do, especially if I needed to put detail into that plan. However over the past 7 years I have found that the more I plan, the more detail I put into what I am about to do
the better the results and the more confident I feel about my actions.
Having an action plan allows you to wake up in the morning and know precisely what it is you have to do for that day and what it is you are working towards.
You see your goals and your action plan work hand in hand.
If you have goals with out a plan, you don’t go anywhere, if you have a plan without a goal, you end up going everywhere but not where you want to go.
Your action plan does not need to be pages and pages of information, however the bigger the result you are looking for, then the more detail you are going to need.
For our business, my action plan is just a few pages but I know each step that I have put in place and I know it in detail and what I need to do to make them work.
If you have things in your action plan that you don’t know precisely how they work, then make sure you put time aside to work on developing that skill. The last thing you need in your plan is something that you don’t know how to do and no plan to find out how to make it work.
Your action plan will be the one thing that brings clarity.
Remember the old saying: “People don’t plan to fail, they fail to plan.”
So your action plan allows you to plan for success, because if you don’t plan for your success, you are planning for your failure.
I will give you my template for an action plan shortly so make sure you stay in touch.
