THE PLAN

We all appreciate that businesses require a Business Plan and a Marketing Plan to be successful and to track their achievements. My nephew, Anthony A.K. King and I were having a discussion and as we talked he shared his passion of working with males in helping them to be successful in life. He had recently met with some young men who were seniors in high school and he asked them about their personal business plans for their life. The young men were caught off guard because even though they were high school seniors no one had ever talked to them about their personal life goals, their business plan.

So I pose the same question to you, what is your plan? Do you have a business plan that will guide you in getting to where it is you say you want to go or to the place you say you want to be? Do you fully embrace your plan? Can you easily recite it to anyone who asks you the infamous question, ‘What are you doing these days?’

What is your vision for your life? How will you get there?

Like the old saying goes; How do you eat an elephant? The answer is: One bite at a time. Do you know what your elephant is? Make the plans to proceed one bite at a time, set incremental steps to reaching your goals. Design your plan in truth and honesty. Please do not get caught up in someone else’s vision for your life. What do you truly desire in this life time? What will you truly do to accomplish what you say is important to you? How long do you want to take to get there? Understand that you are the master of this course. You obtain your doctorate degree at completion.

Is this the first time someone has even asked you this question? Then good, I am glad I am asking it! I applaud you at the finish line. I will be there at the graduation ceremony.
