Planning is not a guarantee of successWe all make many plans in our day-to-day life. For different goals, we make different plans like travel plan, study plan, management plan, business plan, financial plan, long-term plan, short-term plan, etc. A plan is a temporary set of intended tasks which include steps, timings and resources required to achieve a goal. A plan is very important because it is the base that helps in achieving the goals. And it is very difficult to get success without proper and time-bound planning. By making proper plans and following them, one can stay focused, fixed targets, and meet the deadline which can lead to success. So plans are helpful to set the goals.
But anyone's success does not depend on plans only and he/she needs to work hard to achieve the goals. A plan can't give the success guarantee but helps to move towards success.
Results unfold with the execution of the plans. And the outcomes may differ from the expectations hence, sometimes there may be a need to revise a plan. It also gives an opportunity to learn from the failures and correct the mistake and move ahead with the revised plan. For example, in a company, an employee has to submit his project report. He has planned to submit his report by the end of the next week. But due to the pendency of data or error in data, he/ she will not be able to submit his report and he/she has to modify his plan. So everything does not go as planned. It is also not necessary that the plan that worked today will also work tomorrow. And, of course, you never know what will work? So it is required to always make a proper plan with the aims and strategies that have a further scope of revision.
Definitely, making plans helps but does not guarantee success, but reduces the number of attempts and wastage of time. Proper execution and implementation is the most important thing. So, make plans, follow them till the execution and revise, if needed.
