The Power of a Written Plan
Last Update: Apr 28, 2016
Pushing ourselves to do what we have planned to do, and seeing things come together will always be rewarding.
This is because progress is always positive. When we make progress we enjoy a sense of accomplishment and fulfillment.
Never ever underestimate how rewarding it will feel to make a plan, follow a plan, and see things come together!
If you want to find more fulfillment start planning for it, and it just might be easier to find.
I love to make plans and see them through. That being said, I'll never pretend to be a perfect executor. I struggle with follow through and execution. I am simply determined to keep working at it, and not give up.
Having a plan makes it far easier for me to get things done, and as a result feel more accomplished and progressive. If I don't plan, it's far easier for my head to be a total mess. I'm sure I have ADD, cause I can be a real scatter brain. With a dozen things running through my mind at the same time, and a constant itch to go off task and lolly gag while I should be focused and working.
My favorite part of planning, writing goals, having a vision, and knowing that I need to and want to do is it's easier to manage my thoughts. This is because I have already made up my mind, and determined where I want to put my focus. Of course it stay takes effort to stick to it, and I'm not perfect, but boy does it make a world of difference.
I'm sure I've mentioned the power of planners, schedules, goals, etc before. But today's been really good. I've seen the benefits of planning and I want everyone to know the power it has to change your day, and help you make the most of your time. As we make these efforts one step at a time we can gradually improve and find that we are learning and making progress towards who we want to be, and what we want to be doing, and that's what it's all about.
I like to make a list and tick things off - it feels really satisfying somehow when you have ticked every item! :)
I love to tick things off lists too! Recently I have been writing things down in a planner and not ticking them off. In some ways I'm trying to teach myself to feel accomplished with out giving myself check marks, but to look back and see and realize progress...
Plan in writing always works better than just the one you only run in your head.
You can make changes, see what's done and what you have to do.
Thanks for reminding us of the importance of a written plan - great advice!!

I find I do much better when I have a list to follow. Then I can cross things off as I go and I get much more accomplished.
