Chapter 7. The Benefits of Planning

Planning can benefit you in so many ways it’s hard to mention them all. Here are some that stand out above the rest.

  1. Gives Direction: Planning stimulates you to think about the promise of the future rather than the failures of the past.

  2. Coordinates: Planning ties all your efforts and aspirations together in a simple, easily understood, well-balanced program.

  3. Provides Standards: Planning helps you size up your performance, measure your progress, and figure out how well you’re doing.

  4. Clarifies: Planning helps you figure out what you really want out of life by cutting through all the needless gobbledegook that clutters up your mind.

  5. Prepares: Planning gives you the tools you need to deal with sudden and unexpected problems that can hit you at any time and from any position.

  6. Reveals: Planning gives you a clear picture of how different tasks and activities interact to ensure success in your overall quest.

  7. Stimulates: Planning leads you onward and upward by providing the stimulation you need to avoid dead-ends and blind alleys in your work, creativity, and personal relationships.
