What makes a good plan?

image001What factors are involved in creating a good business plan? Is it the length of the plan? The information it covers? How well it’s written, or the brilliance of its strategy. No.

The following illustration shows a business plan as part of a process. You can think about the good or bad of a plan as the plan itself, measuring its value by its contents. There are some qualities in a plan that make it more likely to create results, and these are important. However, it is even better to see the plan as part of the whole process of results, because even a great plan is wasted if nobody follows it.

Planning is a process, not just a plan

A business plan will be hard to implement unless it is simple, specific, realistic and complete. Even if it is all these things, a good plan will need someone to follow up and check on it. The plan depends on the human elements around it, particularly the process of commitment and involvement, and the tracking and follow-up that comes afterward.

Focal Point – Essential Management Lesson

image001 (2)

By Brian Tracy

Once upon a time, there was a major technical problem at a nuclear power plant. This malfunction was slowing energy generation and reducing the efficiency of the entire operation.

As much as they tried, the plant’s engineers could not identify and solve the problem. So they brought in one of the nation’s top consultants on nuclear power plant construction and engineering to see whether he could determine what was wrong. The consultant arrived, put on a white coat, took his clipboard, and went to work. For the next two days, he walked around, studying the hundreds of dials and gauges in the control room, taking notes, and making calculations.

At the end of the second day, he took a black felt marker out of his pocket, climbed up on a ladder, and put a large black “X” on one of the gauges. “This is the problem,” he explained. “Repair and replace the apparatus connected to this meter, and the problem will be solved.” He then took off his white smock, drove back to the airport, and flew home.

In 2009 when my husband and I were separated and contemplating divorce, I was filled with so much hostility that it was literally impossible for me to reconcile with him. And if you think I was hostile, he was even more hostile towards me as he really thought it was over. At this point, our parents knew and it didn’t matter that I was three months pregnant with our son either. Our minds were made up and to us that was the last word, BUT LOVE WAS PREPARING TO STAND!

One day while praying, I knew I had to pray for my husband even though I honestly did not want to. The Lord had been dealing with me about praying for him even though I believed we were through. So as I begin to pray FOR him, something started happening inside of me. Walls started to crumble. Walls that had been built on anger, hostility, hurt and more. Walls I’d built to protect myself from being hurt ever again because I felt that he hurt me just as he felt that I had hurt him. I started crying hard while praying for him. I prayed that the Lord would touch my husband’s heart and mind and for the Lord to protect him. Then suddenly I begin to ask God to restore my marriage. It was the first real prayer I had prayed for my husband and my marriage in months. MONTHS do you hear me? The very reason why our marriage was in the shape that it was in, was because no one was praying.
