    QUOTE OF THE WEEK

    "Good plans shape good decisions. That's why good planning helps to make elusive dreams come true."

    -- Lester R. Bittel


    TOMORROW WILL BE A BETTER DAY (BUT HOW EXACTLY?)

    by David Niven


    "What do you want?

    What do you need to get what you want?

    What are your strengths, your weaknesses? What is the next step you need to take?

    Forget about vague concepts and loose opinions. What are the facts?

    Most of us have plans, lots of plans. And we have ideas, lots of ideas. But we so rarely turn our ideas into our plans, thus creating our future, because little of what we think about progresses beyond concepts and opinions.

    Of course, we can never measure ourselves against concepts and opinions because they are too abstract to define. Thus, we can't say whether we're making progress or what we need to change.

    Define your goals, and define your plans to attain them (Niven, 2002, p. 66)."

    COACHING CALL TO ACTION


    What are you going to do to turn your ideas into plans? And how will you use your plans?

    While you are looking at your plans, take time this week to review your 2006 business plan and assess how you are doing. Are you ahead of plan, on track or do some areas need focused attention?
