How to Plan Your Path to Success

As I sit down to write this post, I have a hard time believing it’s already December. I could bitch about needing more time to get things done.

But why?

Complaining accomplishes squat!

Actually, I did quite a bit this year. (I’ll save the boasting for later.)

How do I do it?

Here’s my strategy.

  1. Plan.
  2. Do.
  3. Adjust.
  4. Rinse and repeat.

Years of working in corporate America have taught me well. In Project Management 101, you learn how to prepare in order to get a lot done.

Am I an expert in time management?

I could certainly improve.

But, as I plan out December and update my goals for the month, quarter, year and more, I take time to recognize my achievements. Measure. Adjust. And move on.

Today, my Christmas story One Nightstand hits the street. When originally asked to write for this anthology, I said I couldn’t…that I had too much going on.

I’m glad I changed my mind. It’s been a wonderful experience, and I wrote a sweet and tender piece that otherwise I wouldn’t have.

Someone once told me, “If you want something done, ask a busy person.”

As you finish off your year, plan where you want to go—else life will determine it for you.
