Plan Ahead

Preplanning your life can yield so much joy and ease all the anxiety…

Babita Chopra

A wrinkled forehead, a tension-filled face, a frustrated expression, a high-pitched tone of voice – all these are indicators of what stress can do. Leading a stressful life hinders our efficiency and lessens our ability to live a healthy and happy life.

Everyone wants to have a stress-free and successful life. Willpower, discipline, the right focus, hard work, etc., are factors for success but one of the most integral factors is the art of 'planning ahead'. And most of the people whom we consider universally successful, people whose accomplishments astonish us, and whose experience we want to learn from, believe in planning ahead!

With our hectic schedules, an overload of responsibilities and action-packed schedules, we forget how to enjoy the moment and be in the present. Planning provides a solution to all these.

I have seen people faltering because of a lack of pre-planning and have also witnessed people who produced results because of planning ahead.

I know of an employee, Senthil, of our principle company, who joined a few years back as an Assistant sales representative and today is the Assistant General Manager of this MNC. His main success mantra is to plan ahead. Where all his colleagues dread the long hours and stress of the month-end closing process to achieve monthly targets, he used to complete the targets well in advance. He never used to run from pillar to post during the month end. His planning would begin from the start of the month itself.
