The difference between the people who succeed in life and those who are yet to succeed is the way they implement their strategies. The way you attend to your day to day planning and whether you are able to stick to your plan, will determine the time you will take to get to the top and achieve personal development.
Having said this, I want also to add that having a strategy is not enough; one must act on that strategy. This is where most of us get lost because personal planning is easy, setting goals is not that hard but having the stamina of acting on the set goals is where the problem lies.
As much as it is important to make plans, it is more important to note that one must be able to sustain the energy that was there when making the strategy and when implementing it. One must be ready and willing to work harder and give all it takes in order to realize your set goals.
In order to attain personal development, one has to be an excellent time manager. Every minute you waste widens the gap between you and success. Time is money, time is precious, and time is a maker if you keep it and a breaker if you waste it.
For instance, if you plan to cut down on your expenditure and save more, start immediately. If you have a personal strategy of starting a business or investing in some stocks or unit trusts, do not postpone anymore, act now! Not tomorrow, not next month or next time, start now.
It is time we wake up and transform our dreams and set goals into reality. Do not fold your hands and wait until the day when you will have money or until someone else will come help you. Get into action with whatever little you have. A little anything is better than nothing. Do not despise the days of small beginnings, even the longest journeys start with a single step!
