Planning Perspectives

Every minute you spend in planning saves 10 minutes in execution; this gives you a 1,000 percent return on energy!
Brian Tracy

Plans are created top-down and future backwards.

The creation of a plan starts with where you want to end up and works backward from there. The overall vision is created and then the big building blocks and then the smaller blocks.

A plan starts with goals and then objectives. Objectives are evaluated and split into smaller objectives

On the other hand, creation is a bottom-up activity. You start with the small objectives and then assembled to achieve the larger objectives. One step at a time until the final goal has been reached.

This change of perspective is difficult for many people. This is the change between planning and executing.

Just as a hockey player playing a game just focuses on the next shift. When we are creating our vision our focus is on the next objective.

Between games, the hockey player can plan for the next game.

On weekends we can plan for our next week.
