Plan Your Work ...

Recently, I heard the phrase:  

"Plan your work and work your plan."

I'd never heard it before but it makes sense.

Although I can't find out who originally said it, it seems as if many people have said the phrase.  Some of them said it in different ways, but the meaning was the same.  Greats such as Margaret Thatcher, Vince Lombardi, and others have used the phrase in one way or another.  There's even a phrase in the Bible that alludes to the phrase (Proverbs 21:5 -- Good planning and hard work lead to prosperity, but hasty shortcuts lead to poverty. ~ New Living Translation).

But what does it mean?

It means you make a draft for what you want to get done then follow the draft to get the work done.

Wow.  Few words but so important.  If you do that every day and actually fulfill your plan, think how much you'll accomplish.

I spend a lot of the day just wondering what to do next.  This might help, if I plan what I intend to do and then take it one step at a time to work the plan.  Create the plan and then do the job.  Easy, but effective.  Make every minute count and you'll be rewarded with a job finished.

Have a great day!
