Hello everyone and how are you today? Well I believe.
Before I go on, I’d like to say a big thank you to all those who have visited our ‘community’ in recent times and an even bigger thank you to those who have just joined us. I really do appreciate you all, thank you!
Today, we will be looking at 2 things that I consider to be key, in planning effectively.
What does it mean to plan effectively?
Planning effectively means that you have a detailed and decisive method, which will be put into action, so that you can accomplish a purpose. Whether or not your planning involves a small or large group, these 2 keys will be helpful, for you to plan effectively.
1. Ask for help when necessary!
As simple as this may sound, it is very important. You need to be wise enough to know when to seek appropriate guidance or instruction and you have to be willing to receive it when it comes. There is absolutely no need working yourself to the point of frustration, when you can ask for help and get the job done in less time than it would take you alone to do it. When it comes to planning, remember this: the main focus is to accomplish a purpose, not to win a trophy!
2. Get rid of contention
Where there is contention, there is little or no progress. In order for you (and your team) to plan effectively, AVOID contention! You can not be effective when you spend your time and effort ‘doing battle’ or ‘cosying’ up with strife. One generic purpose of planning is to move forward (to progress, to achieve a profitable purpose). The only way to get this to happen is to – AGREE! Agreement is absolutely essential. It is the first step to accomplishing anything anywhere – when two or more people are involved (come to think of it, you would hardly do anything without first having a sort of agreement conversation with yourself!)
That’s all I have time for today. Keep planning effectively and have a lovely week.
Lead right and live light
