The best way to predict your future is to create it!
Last Update: Nov 15, 2016
Creating your future is planning ahead. You must have a clear view of what you want to achieve. That way, it is more easy to predict your future.
Planning is the key to create your future. Without a plan, it would be very difficult to set up the things you wanted to create. That's why when you fail to plan, most likely that you are planning to fail.
Team Building Experience
I remember, few months back, when I joind a team building training, we were given the task to create the tallest structure out of popsicle sticks and a chewing gum. The First thing that came to mind is to make the highest possible structure by just sticking all in single pole upwards. Thinking about creating the highest among other teams and outsmart them, it never came to my mind that its is not that all easy. We did that as much as we can. But when we tried to make it stand, we realized that there should be a base. Under time pressure, we just do whatever we think on our own. The structure went out unstable.
Given the time frame, i could have spent the first 5 minutes planning with the team. Then divide the task and delegating what needs to be done. That's what planning can do. To organize what you want to do and set a specific workflow based on the plan. Therefore, planning ahead is predicting and controling your future, thus creating your own success.
