Today's Quotes are about planning...

I feel like much of my life right now is planning.
Planning for the kids future... Planning for my meals for the week... Planning for plans with my boyfriend...

Sometimes, I just need a little phrase to dance around in my head and encourage me. I've never been a planner, so this... this is new to me.

A goal without a plan is just a wish. ~Antoine de Saint-Exupery (1900 - 1944)
~I need to remember this. Stop dreaming... Stop wishing... make a plan to the end goal!


Make no little plans; they have no magic to stir men's blood...Make big plans, aim high in hope and work. ~Daniel H. Burnham (1846 - 1912)
~My plans are momentous.. they are life changing and will alter the course I thought I had been on. They stir my blood, my thoughts and my heart! Without these goals.. I would stagnate!

Zeus does not bring all men's plans to fulfillment. ~Homer (800 BC - 700 BC),
~We must always remember that sometimes.. our plans aren't meant to happen. Due to time lines, schedules, or even the hearts and minds of humankind won't allow it!

Just because something doesn't do what you planned it to do doesn't mean it's useless. ~Thomas A. Edison (1847 - 1931)
~Not all things work out as we want, but we must make sure to give it a second look. Sometimes what we planned wasn't feasible!

Create a definite plan for carrying out your desire and begin at once, whether you are ready or not, to put this plan into action. ~Napoleon Hill
~This is the toughest one for me. Once I start... there is no stopping me, so I must be careful how fast I plan.. because once it's ON... I'm going full throttle!

He who every morning plans the transaction of the day and follows out that plan, carries a thread that will guide him through the maze of the most busy life. But where no plan is laid, where the disposal of time is surrendered merely to the chance of incidence, chaos will soon reign. ~Victor Hugo (1802 - 1885)
~My life has always been pretty chaotic... this might explain why :) However.. sometimes... you need the chaos to remind you why you are alive!!!!

I like the quote by Napoleon Hill,
"Create a definite plan for carrying out your desire and begin at once, whether you are ready or not, to put this plan into action."

I need to read this quote daily, lol.

You're not alone in the "not a planner" world. I need to be better at that too. :)

Awesome quotes and so true. This one has always been one of my favorites: A goal without a plan is just a wish. ~Antoine de Saint-Exupery
