CHAPTER 7-ORGANIZED PLANNING:
THE CRYSTALLIZATION OF DESIRE INTO ACTION
The Complete Leader states, “Effective planning and organization require the ability to create and use logical, systematic processes to achieve goals. Those who are skilled at this competency can visualize the steps needed to reach a goal and naturally organize the process, modifying as necessary. Tomorrow’s leaders will use planning and organization to cast a broad net around what might happen and to create a plan that is robust enough to respond to the unknown. As you practice planning and organization, you will see that creating workable plans helps keep team members accountable and projects on track.”
I enjoy cooking and creating a new dish. Most of my creations start at the store. I find a nice cut of meat, be it beef, chicken or pork even fish. Now the planning start with how “Will I prepare this meat with a Mexican, Asian, Italian, or Country style?” What spices, vegs or marinade will go best with it? What side dish would go with it, potatoes, a paste, a salad, green beans, or peas? Before I leave the store, I have an organized plan for a great meal ready to implement.
Wouldn’t it be wonderful if we had a place where we could put together an organized plan for building our Network Marketing business? A place where we take ideas off a shelf to be used in launch a business? We would be able to find any kind the tools for personal development, life skills, marketing skills, and more.
Well, we do, it is called Mentoring for Free. Here we have a system and organize a plan for attracting people. We have shelves or archives of audios and videos full of marketing, social media and other skills needed to launch a business. We have 8 weekly live inactive calls where we can get the wisdom of people from different backgrounds and perspectives.
Hills instruction is simply:
“First. You are engaged in an undertaking of major importance to you. To be sure of success, you must have plans which are faultless.
Second. You must have the advantage of the experience, education, native ability and imagination of other minds. This is in harmony with the methods followed by every person who has accumulated a great fortune.
No individual has sufficient experience, education, native ability, and knowledge to insure the accumulation of a great fortune, without the cooperation of other people. Every plan you adopt, in your endeavor to accumulate wealth, should be the joint creation of yourself and every other member of your “Master Mind” group. You may originate your own plans, either in whole or in part, but see that those plans are checked, and approved by members of your “mater mind” alliance.”
This is the very reason I am here at Mentoring for Free, I can tap into the experiences, education, abilities, and imagination of others. I can listen to plans others have developed to build my plans. I can work with my mentors, share my ideas, and gain from their years of wisdom, knowledge, and experience.
I am grateful to Linda and Michael Dlouhy in creating their plans for a mastermind such as we have today. Thank you, Bob Shoaf, for being my friend and mentor. I deeply appreciate everyone who participates in the weekly calls and shares your wisdom. Many, many thanks to everyone who downloaded Success in 10 Steps” and allows me to be a mentor to you.
