Visualize, Make a Plan–Go…

Quotes and Notes #225, June 24

“The vision must be followed by the venture. It is not enough to stare up the steps—we must step up the stairs.”—Vince Havner—

To dream a dream, to make a plan,
To study the steps of the plan and take them one at a time,
To reach your goal—
You can do it.

And share a smile as you go
Everything is going to be all right
John P. Schulz—“Sweetie Drives on Chemo Days.”

One step at a time, you'll get there.

Adjust the Action Steps…

Quotes and Notes #217, June 15

“When it is obvious that the goals cannot be reached, don’t adjust the goals, adjust the action steps.”—Confucius—

If you take the wrong turn on a road trip and find that the road you are on does not lead to your desired destination, the natural act is to look at the map and find another road. Of course, if there’s not a map to where you are going, then the trip becomes an adventure.

And as always, Share a smile
Everything is going to be all right
John P. Schulz—“Sweetie Drives on Chemo Days.”

Change Your Plans but Refine Your Goals

Quotes and Notes #176, April 30

“Failed plans should not be interpreted as a failed vision. Visions don’t change, they are only refined. Plans rarely stay the same and are scrapped or adjusted as needed. Be stubborn about the vision, but flexible with your plan.”—John C. Maxwell—

My wise brother, Tom Schulz, once said, “I like to set my goals at the end of the day. That way I reach a 100% success rate.” I don’t think that he thinks I listen, but I often do.

We must have the ability to change our plans as they develop. When a part of the plan goes wrong, analyze the fault and quickly change the plan to what works. At the same time, we must keep sight of the overall goal but as the plans teach us, we may wish to refine the parameters of the goal. That’s good, too.

To refine the plan and the goal with grace, follow this advice:

“Nothing is softer or more flexible than water, yet nothing can resist it.”—Lao Tzu—

Set a goal to make people smile today.
