Importance of planning

Most people do not know what they want, in our civilization, in our society, anyone can have whatever they want in life. However, 90% of the population has either a vague idea of what they want, or no idea at all. Brian Tracy - Fenix Seminar

Everything that is organized and clear in life tends to progress, grow and multiply. This is because the mind is a machine with very advanced technology, which only works if a logical and direct order is conditioned towards a goal.

As human beings, we have a tremendous potential to achieve everything we desire and develop ourselves based on what we feel identified with. But we must learn to organize, plan and clarify ideas and events in order to give meaning to our lives.

From chaos, order emerges

Most people do not know what they want and that is why they live a monotonous life, in an unstoppable cycle of surviving in a world where there is no clear objective.

Planning provides us with a log to follow that shows us a starting point or where we are, marks a goal to reach, or where we want to go, and tells us what will be done to reach the goal, and how it will be done. Therefore, it is the first function of the administrative process, since it serves as a pillar for the other functions: organization, coordination, and control, and that is why planning is important.
