Planning is a very important and easily learned technology. It has often been said that if you fail to plan, you plan to fail. So true. But a real plan (and I define a good plan as one that gets done,) is not a list of to-do items. It is the creation of your future.
“THE SUCCESS OF ANY EVENT IS DIRECTLY PROPORTIONAL TO THE TIMELY PREPARATION.”1
