Planning where you want to go personally, spiritually and professionally is a must. If you don’t have a plan of what you want to accomplish and what you’re going to do to get there, it can feel overwhelming or a lot like being lost.
To plan for the future, you need to know where you’re at right now.
First let’s look at relationships. You have a lot of relationships with other people; the question is what type of relationship is it? Is it a personal one, strictly professional, or both? How did you get to know this person? How can you help them? Do you have common relationships with other people?
So, to know how to keep and develop your relationships, it’s important to have an understanding of what they look like now, how they relate to you and their connections with other people, events and information.
Now let’s look at all the information and knowledge you’ve amassed over the years. It is said that knowledge is power. But as Goethe said, “Knowing is not enough, we must apply. Willing is not enough, we must do.” Knowledge is of no value if it is not used.
How can you make use of, or act on, any information or knowledge you’ve acquired if you can’t remember it or find it? To plan on where you want your business to go, you need to understand what you have in terms of information and knowledge you can use. Most of us don’t need more information, we just need to know what we have and make use of it.
Now that we’ve demonstrated the importance of organizing and managing your relationships, information and knowledge, there are a couple of places you can go to to find out how we organize and manage it all.
Trust us… knowing where you’re at in your relationships, what information and knowledge you have… and being able to find it and make use of it, is a huge step in successful planning. That in turn is a huge step in your future happiness and success.
