Think and Grow Rich – Chapter 7 – Organized Planning
The Crystallization of Desire into Action
Hill says, “Keep in mind these facts—
First. You are engaged in an undertaking of major importance to you. To be sure of success, you must have plans which are faultless.”
OK….So now I’m packing my suitcase for Success and first I put in the list of needed items is DESIRE. Check. Got it! Next, I will put in an extra-large box of IMAGINATION, Check, its there. Be sure not to forget my mastermind group, yup! Check! Got it! Hamm, what is next??? DEFINITE PLANS. Hamm. Now, where did I put that? I went to trainings and got a list, oh where did I put that list? OH, Here it is!
Whew! Now let’s see. Last time this happened, I was just trying to sign up for a promotion. I didn’t hear anyone say HOW to do that. I called my company and they didn’t know what I was talking about. That’s because it was so simple. Everything online is simple when you know how to do it. Eventually, hours later, I got it and, of course, it was simple.
I’m hitting the same wall today. I’m writing my daily schedule, and first I’m trying to send the current promotion to all my phone contacts. OK…I started it last night. I got through about 500 of them and was going to finish this morning. Well, this morning I had to start in the middle of the list in my company app. How do I do that? Who to call? How do I move from “A” and start at “M.” Maybe I can just fiddle with it and figure it out. Oh My Gosh!!!, It’s already 4pm and I haven’t sent one yet.
SO….what do I need? Something more. I need a member of my mastermind to give me a hand. It’s clear that I need some extra training on the use of the computer and the company APP. Time out! Stop and learn the technology, then GET ON WITH THE PLAN. I’m so glad to have this group I can call on for help. .
Thanks to Michael and Linda Dlouhy for providing this mastermind group where we can help and teach other these little irritating answers for our needs.
