Remember the old adage, those who fail to plan, plan to fail. There is a reason why that saying has stuck around so long because it is true.
Here are 5 reasons why you need a plan.
You need direction
You need to know what you are doing and where you are going. A plan gives you a definitive roadmap towards getting there. People without plans are aimless. Don’t be one of them.
You need to track performance
You cannot manage what you cannot measure. A plan lets you track to see whether or not your plan is working. It is important to know what is and isn’t working so that you can drop what isn’t working and keep what is working.
You need to communicate your aim
Things rarely go according to plan. You’ll run into problems and will need help along the way. A plan spells out the kind of help that you’ll to get from others.
You get buy-in
People love helping people win. Having a plan lets them see how they can help you and where they can contribute.
You’ll have a template for future use
Plans can be reused in the future. If you have to do this again, you’ll have this actual plan as reference.
