The Importance of an Action Plan to Achieve Your Goals

“If you fail to plan, you are planning to fail!” – Benjamin Franklin

An action plan helps you to know what needs to be done in order to materialize your dream or goal.

It helps you to direct your focus on the priority actions to take in order to see progress in the process and to get the desired outcome.

It includes the sub-steps, who is responsible for what (delegation can ease a lot of things for you), and a time to accomplish the tasks, as well as some notes about the possible challenges and the solutions for them.

So ask yourself this question: What will it take to achieve my goals? To materialize my dreams?

Find out the major steps you will need to take, these are your subgoals and then chunk them down into doable sub-steps.

Be aware of the obstacles that you will encounter and have a plan for them too. Schedule it on your calendar. If you don’t plan then your plan is to fail.

Now let’s look at a 4 steps process to help you create your action plan, armed with that one most important SMART goal, you want to put your focus on, until completion. Here is what to do next:

Your habits become your values,

Your values become your destiny.” — Mahatma Gandhi

Learn To Forgive

Forgiveness often doesn’t come to us naturally. Most often the instinctive reaction is to hold grudge or to get even.

Even when we want to forgive, it can be difficult because we forgive with our words but we still feel grudge inside.

This can cause damages to our Self in the long run. So it is important for us that we learn to forgive if we want to live a truly fulfilled life.

In this blog post, I will present some simple principles that will help us learn to forgive.

Find out the positives that have emerged from that experience and be grateful for it. You know that you have forgiven when you can be grateful for the experience.

Be grateful for the fact that you have grown from the hurt and the wrong that the experience has caused into your life. Be grateful for the people who helped you in the process of overcoming that situation.

Realize that since you are still here, alive, it didn’t destroy you. The lessons you have learned from it will make you stronger, wiser and you will be valuable to other people. Keep Reading
