“Don’t fail to plan. If you do, plan to fail!”

The scripture says, “Get good advice and you shall succeed; don’t go charging into battle without a plan”

Starting a project is easy, but without careful planning it is like setting off on a journey to an unknown destination without a roadmap. Planning is one of the most important parts of running a business. Planning is a process to determine a future course of action. Planning helps you adapt to the future by keeping you on course in achieving your goals and objectives. Abraham Lincoln once stated, “If I had 60 minutes to cut down a tree, I would spend 40 minutes sharpening the ax and 20 minutes cutting it down.” Planning (also called forethought) is the process of thinking about and organizing the activities required to achieve a desired goal. This thought process is essential to creation.
