What Are Your Plans

We have a new month about to come to us at the end of this week. The big question in my mind is what are we going to do?

You’re more likely to get something done if you make a plan and write it down. You don’t have to make earth-shattering discoveries. Sometimes the most profound work boils up from small ideas.

There’s a trick to getting things done. Figure out what you want to do for a given period, and write it down. Not in the back of some notebook that you won’t be looking at for the next three months, write your intentions down somewhere where they are in your face, and you see them every day. I often use a whiteboard, an affinity chart built with post-it notes, or my monthly calendar, which I carry and look at every day.

When something is important to us, we take the time to do it right. Everything has a cost, yet not all prices are monetary. Time and attention are two resources we need to spend with great care.

What are your plans for our upcoming month?
