Getting Started

Why Plan?

Nothing of any importance has ever been accomplished without planning. Our ritual even emphasizes this by using planning, or the lack thereof, to drive home a point about its importance.

The word planning, however, can bring up many fears and misgivings about the process. Most people have never been taught how to plan correctly and if you do even a simple search on planning, you will be overwhelmed with the number of books, websites and other resources available. It is this overload of information and planning systems that makes many people decide not to try planning at all. And that is too bad, as a good plan actually makes meeting your goals and being successful much easier.

The Goal

The goal of this website is to take a mountain of information on planning and reduce it down into a system that is easy to learn and use, and one that will give you the best chance of success! In the following pages, you will move through 6 steps to a successful plan:

  1. Creating / establishing a Mission Statement
  2. Creating goals that align with the Mission Statement
  3. Breaking those goals down into an executable task list
  4. Managing the execution of the task list
  5. Collecting feedback
  6. Applying feedback to your next project

The best thing about these 6 steps is that NO prior experience in planning or project management is needed! Just follow the steps in order and you’re halfway to meeting your goal!
