Hope is NOT a Strategy

Hope is NOT a Strategy

That’s right, hope is not a strategy. You must prepare; you must create a plan.

What is it that you want to do? What do you want to accomplish? What are your goals?

Write them down. Otherwise, they’re not real – they’re just dreams – and you won’t remember or accomplish them.

Write them down. You can change modify and edit them, but write them down to make them real.

Create a business plan. If you’ve never done a real business plan, buy a template. It will ask you things that you won’t think to ask yourself. It will give you direction and, as you’re moving, keep you on course.

You can do something basic but I suggest you dig deeper and buy a plan. They’re available many places. I used Business Plan Pro. Let me know if you find a better template.

Remember, Hope is Not a Strategy – no matter what your goals, have a plan!

What have you done to create and follow a plan to your goals?
