It is important to plan for the things that you want in your life. Have you ever told someone things like: “We should go to lunch one day”, or “We should meet after church one day to speak”, or “We should talk about starting a business one day”. I have done this in the past and then realized that months later that I have not caught up with that person because I just left statements without follow though. I learned as I got older that when asking someone to do something, I have learned that I need to make it a priority to see when we are both available and to make the date and time an appointment on my calendar.
I will ask questions like the following instead:
“Would you like to go to lunch on Saturday at 1pm”, or
“Let’s meet after church at 1pm to speak about the missions trip”, or
“Let’s start a new business together by researching the new technology in the field that we are interested in by next week Wednesday when we meet again”.
You get the point… be direct and make a plan.
“But the Lord’s plans stand firm forever; his intentions can never be shaken.”Psalms 33:11 NLT
How are some ways that you can plan and schedule what is needed in order to accomplish your goals today?
