I am a planner.
I love making a plan - I enjoy creating a vision of an ideal outcome, and then considering all of the necessary components for reaching said outcome.
I find it pleasing to strategize, satisfying to ponder.
I like hammering out logistics, thinking through eventualities, factoring in best practices and creating a clear way to Get. It. Done.
I also find comfort in having a plan in place, in knowing there’s an intentional path at the ready, specifically designed to lead me directly to my desired result.
I like how plans can unite people, allowing them to rally around a common cause or work together towards a common goal.
I use plans to wring excess worry out of a situation and create a buffer around the anxiety of having to navigate brand new or historically uncomfortable circumstances.
But here’s the thing about plans - they are truly only valuable when they inspire actual and consistent #action.
You can have a million plans in place, but if you’re not DOING anything with them, they’re not going to get you very far, amirite?!
So yes, plans are my friend, and I have lots of big ones, but lately I’ve been focusing my energy on what #action I can take to turn my plans into reality.
#Action is where it’s at; #action is what separates the superstars from the rest.
It’s been said that vision without #action is merely daydreaming, but vision WITH #action can change the world.
So while having a plan can be helpful, turning that plan into #action is always where the REAL magic happens.
This week, I invite you to join me in looking for ways to take #action on our good ideas and our best laid plans.
I just know there is magic out there that is ours for the taking. :)
