Lou Ludwig Success Tips: Planning Moves You Into the Future With a Purpose

Planning Moves You Into the Future With a Purpose

Planning Moves You Into the Future With a Purpose

Planning is bring the future into the present so that you

 can do something about if now.”

Alan Lakein, Author  


As I see it. . . . . . . .

Planning moves you into the future with a purpose


Planning today for future creates . . . . Is the vision of the path that you will follow . . . . and the mile markers for your success journey to achieve your purpose.


As you plan . . . . you bring your future into the present which allows you to go forward with a purpose  . . . . and a road map on how you’ll get to your destination. Having a plan will also show you when you have moved off course . . . . and the way to back on track.


Planning creates focus to move forward . . . . and to move in the right direction . . . .


Because you know where you’re going . . . . you have options. You have the option to make adjustments . . . . or to change your course when you encounter roadblocks and obstacles. Or you have the option to continue on your current path.


When you have a plan for the future and you follow the plan . . . . You will move forward with a sense of confidence in your actions . . . . which will results in better decision making.


With a plan you’re knows where you’re going how you will get there . . . . and you will make progress in the direction of your goals. A person without a plan has the tendency to drift through life . . . . without a clear direction for there life.


Planning moves you into the future with a purpose . . . . Planning creates options; with your plan in place creates the option of following a path way to succeed.  A person without a plan picks the option of drifting through life without a vision for their future.

Always great to have a plan for the future. Just have to remember that it is OK to occasionally chenge the rules.

When everywhere you read about how a business plan both written and followed is the key to success and KW agents do theirs every year and KW has now risen to the ranks of the Number 1 real estate company in the US, there definitely seems to be correlation.

Good morning Lou. Nicely related to the real estate business and so right. If a move in someone's sight, planning is an important step.

Make it a great weekend!

Lou - So many think that much of success is based on luck or good fortune when in reality it's the proper planning that establishes the foundation to achieve it.

Love the fact you said " because you know where you're going....you have options" So many people think a plan is to constraining and can't veer off it.

Thanks Lou for constantly reminding me that I can be philosophical as well as productive!  Your commentary often causes me to think and sometimes to even re-think the environments in which I work and live.  Thanks for being that "shot in the arm ..."
