RAZOR BRANDING BLOG: Plan It Out - Ahead of Time

Plan It Out - Ahead of Time

Business moves so fast these days that it's easy to find yourself just reacting to whatever happens next.

Moving forward without a plan in place.

Deciding on a case by case basis.

Reacting to all of these different opportunities that keep presenting themselves.

The following video is an incredible example of what you can accomplish with four months of planning. Truly planning out every single detail. Well, lots of planning and some post it notes.

Pretty incredible, isn't it? Imagine what you could do if you had four months to plan it out. Instead of 4 minutes to react to it.

Stephen Covey's 7 Habits of Highly Effective People puts a lot of emphasis on planning ahead. As a matter of fact, it is the cornerstone of the first three habits:

  • Habit 1: Be Proactive
  • Habit 2: Begin with the End in Mind
  • Habit 3: Put First Things First
Do you have a few minutes to invest in planning instead of reacting? How much better would your decisions be?
