Chapter 7 Oragnized Planning

Everyone enjoys doing the kind of work for which he is best suited. An artist loves to work with paints, a craftsman with his hands, 
a writer loves to write. Those with less definite talents have their preferences for certain fields of business and industry. 
If America does anything well, it offers a full range of occupations, tilling the soil, manufacturing, marketing, and the professions.

There are many opportunites, but a person must create an organized plan in order to reach his or her full potential.  I enjoy 
building things, but lately I've been a little overwhelmed...I've been working on too many projects at one time.  I recently asked 
myself why are you trying to handle so many projects at one time.  The answer came instantly...I watched my dad, my whole life work 
on multiple projects at once...some got completed and some are still unfinished to this day.  My dad does a lot frame off restorations 
on antique vehicles.  Some people come to him with an organized plan, but most have no idea what they want...most of these people lose 
interest and their vehicle becomes a yard ornament in my dad's pasture.  

I've decided to slow down and do one thing at a time, it's a great feeling to complete a project and THEN move on to the next!  
Lately I've told people that I will not accept a new project until I finish my current projects...I've made a lot of progress and 
I must admit that it feels good crossing things off my list, instead of chasing my tail in circles, not getting anything done!!! I know that time is our most important asset and I don't take that lightly.  

Thank you Linda and Michael Dlouhy for teaching me how to create an organized plan and most importantly teaching me time management
skills.  Thank you to all my friends here at MFF for all your brillance.
