Motivational Power Quote

The Best Time To Plan

 "The best time to plant a tree

was 20 years ago.

The next best time is now."

 Chinese proverb


As I see it. . . . . . . .

The best time to plan 

Planning for our future starts with our planning today.  

We can always look back with regret on missed opportunities and the things that we did not do.   

The key to our future is not to dwell on the past or to repeat the missed opportunities but to use our past experiences as a learning experience for the future.   

Planning for our future is planning in advance for our success.  

The best time to begin planning for our future is today. Begin by preparing a roadmap for our success journey.  

Know where you want your success journey to take you and how you'll get there and use that vision in your planning to reach your goals.  

Invest your time in planning before you start your success journey. The time you invest in planning today will give you better direction, shorten your journey, and keep you on course.  

The best time to plan for tomorrow is today and when you plan today you will invest your time today in your future success.

Lou - Very true.  Kind of like trying to drive somewhere you've never been without getting any directions first.  Besides, if you don't know where you're going, how will you know when you get there??

Hey Lou ... if I knew then what I know now ... I'd have planted an entire forest!  Thanks for the reminder .... it's perhaps rarely too late!

That is a great quote Lou! We buy a real tree every year for Christmas, decorate it and then plant it in the backyard. Just our way of giving back.

Great points. We can't dwell on or celebrate our past decisions to the point that we miss opportunities to make our next decisions our best ones.
