Wisdom For Strategic Planning.
Every vision can only be fulfilled by strategic planning. To plan you need reasoning. You can't plan without your mind. You need to engage your brain. If you don't subscribe for mental work, you will subscribe for menial jobs. Engage your brain, it is the key to gain.
In everything we do in life, we need to always go for an upgrade. Knowledge can be updated.
Planning is the act of deciding before hand, what is to be done, when it is to be done, how it is to be done and who is going to do it. It is an intellectual process which outlines your objectives and develops various causes of action.
Steps To Strategic Planning.
Know What You Want:
Do you know what you want to do? What is the one thing you want to achieve this year? A lot of people want to do so much in so little time. The thing is, you need to avoid taking on a whole lot. The danger of taking on many things is never achieving anything.
What "tower" do I want to build this year? We need to ask ourselves this.
Be Intentional About It:
To be intentional means to be purposeful. You must intend to make your vision happen. Don't just write it on paper. Be intentional about how you use your time, your choices, what you read, where you go, how you live your life and who is in your circle of influence. Any choice that wot advance your vision should not be taken or be an option. Stop being bothered about what people think but about what it takes to achieve your vision.
How To Sustain Your Intention?
You have to be intense or be passionate about the things you want to do. You have to involve both your brain and your emotions in what you want to do or what you are doing. Make an energy audit and ask yourself, "Is your energy used in the right direction?" "Does your passion help build your tower?"
Do An Assessment:
Count the cost and there is a price for the prize. Everything worth having has a price tag on it. Everything worth anything cost something. Do you have the resources and the qualifications to achieve that vision? The purpose of assessment is not to discourage you but to enable you mobilize the things you don't have and also build capacity for what is needed.
"Just any dummy can succeed if he cares to know how to succeed." - Ziglar.
Every great planner must be a great reasoner. Life is practical and not mystical. Brain work make things work. Count the cost. Sit down with your vision. Let your vision produce. Let what you carry make sense out of you. Your true image is your product and not your posture. It is always about what has come out of you.
Don't abandon your big dreams because your capacity is small...rather mobilize for it. Everyone who has achieved what was big didn't have what it took when they started.
Don't just have a vision on paper, give it expression. This year, finish what you started. Abandoned projects brings about mockery.
NB: All images are mine.
Thank you for your time.

How are you kuya? Hope you're doing pretty well 😊
I need to learn about the meaning of Kuya. It sounds nice. 💟
Hahaha it means big brother. Don't mind Janey, that's what she likes to call me. I've told her to make it more romantic instead 🤣🤣
My sweet Janey. I am doing great and you? Happy new week. I missed you. How is everything at your end?
We must not leave life to chance. It won't get us anywhere. We have to be intentional, dream it, work towards it and assess things first. Most people dabble into what they can't finish because they didn't weigh the cost of it. Assess it and then go all the way.
Another Sunday power driver. Thank you.
It's risky to leave life to chance. We have to take things by the scruff of the neck if we are to ever get anything done. We have to stay motivated and take the needed steps.
Thank you so much. Happy new week.
It felt like you had me in mind while writing this, I do need these words at the moment, I need to know what I want and be intentional about getting it.
The truth is that I don't know what I really want because I feel they are kind of not on my level but reading this I now know that I just have to build up and not think of settling for less.
Thank you so much for always sharing these beautiful words of encouragement and motivation, I've learned a lot from you these past days ❤️.
Have a fulfilled and blessed week 🥰.
Sometimes I don't know what I want too. I leave a lot of things to chances but I got to know that living this life, we can't help but to plan. Fail to plan, plan to fail.
Fail to plan...plan to fail. We don't have to keep leaving everything to chance. There is time for everything. A time to act and a time to wait it out.
That's right, we need to always make our plans for things and then hope it goes well and if it doesn't we just have to replan.
Yeah I do feel like that sometimes and I do think just like you. We just have to plan out things so we can see how well we are doing at every point.
I am more than happy to share and I am glad you absolutely enjoyed this. I am happy to read your heartfelt comment too. This means a lot as usual.
How have you been? I wish you a productive end for the rest of the week.
I'm happy I could make your heart feel warm with my comments, that's really a great accomplishment for me ☺️.
I've been doing just fine, I'm planning to face my studies and that will make me a little less active here but I will try to show up as much as I can.
Thank you so much for your best wishes as always, I wish you the best too ❤️
The reality is nothing actually free, even a gift has a price to be paid. The only difference is they all carry a different name.
Lovely family though. God bless 🙌
A free gift, someone paid for it. Someone who planned. Planning is important.
Planning is important if we want to achieve more and make the most of situations too.
Thank you so much. Someone once joked that even in Freetown, nothing is free hahahaha.
I appreciate your time and comment.
