Plan tomorrow today and you’ll have time to prepare for the day that you
choose instead of the day that you settle for.

About seven weeks ago I created several goals that could easily be accomplished in a six week period. The goals were in writing. Previously they were ideas that I had been talking about. The plans were goals in theory only because in talking about them, I had ‘plans’ and if I was talking about them, I was moving towards those ‘plans’. Right? Well…not so much.

A few days ago, as I reviewed those written goals I was disappointed that not one was accomplished. So it seemed, I had not even made measurable movement towards the goals.

Revelation! I had a choice, to take action towards those goals or to give up. I chose to take intentional steps of moving towards what I say I wanted – the written goals.

Planning tomorrow today allows you to accomplish your intentions for tomorrow. Settling is simply allowing circumstances to dictate the day. At the end of each day, create a plan, in writing, for tomorrow.

What are you settling for in your day? Are you achieving the goals you’ve set for yourself? Does your day seem unproductive? Is your list of things to do getting longer without accomplishing your goals? How are you becoming intentional to accomplish your goals? What are you settling for?

Your brilliance matters!  

For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.
Jeremiah 29:11
