#BGIM Christmas 🎄 Came EARLY Edition I
Yesterday’s weekly #BGIM (Bless God It’s Monday) wasn’t released as always although one very good follower requested for it by 8am in the morning.
The Editorial Committee meanwhile had quite some SPECIAL plans for Christmas 🎄 albeit also wanting to prepare everyone for the Christmas 🎄 festivities with 4 Editions before 2015 ends since we were left with 2 Mondays excluding the Monday of the Christmas 🎄 week.
So, we are releasing 4 Critical Editions of #BGIM this week for every working day, (though it isn’t Monday) but with the idea 💡 to help us have a memorable and fruitful Christmas 🎄 season.
#BGIM Xmas 🎅 Edition I
IT’S TIME to PLAN BETTER
It is said that “if you fail to plan, you plan to fail“. So because of that almost everybody plans in one way or the other for him not to fail, though the plans may not be concrete, written down 📝 or exhaustive. At least a short concise plan at worst in the person’s head is something to start 🏁 with.
So we agree everyone in their own small way PLANS in one way or the other but today I admonish us all to
What do I mean by Plan Better?
Let me give you a very key 🔑 reflection I have realised this year 2015.
Looking 👀 at the way certain crucial programmes/events I was involved in at the church ⛪, work 🏢 or family 👪 level DIDN’T turn up 👆 so well in 2014 all due to INADEQUATE Planning, I resolved that I along with anybody I worked with in this year would plan things BETTER this year and a Ghanaian would say “OYIWAA!!!” (Truly) and Archimedes, the Great Scientist would exclaim “EUREKA!!!“, the results have been TREMENDOUS.
Almost anyone who I worked with in both years during his reflection of 2015 would surely see that THAT has been the key 🔑 to our MASSIVE IMPROVEMENT over the past 365 days, all to the Glory of God’s Holy Name.
Better Planning TIPS include
~When you know you have a TASK to accomplish, have a very CLEAR plan down 👇 taking into consideration any UNFORESEEN happenings.
~As much as possible, WRITE it DOWN 📝 clearly so that your mind naturally has something it is consciously working towards, avoid forgetfulness of the full details and most importantly OTHERS can also look at it and run 🏃 along with you (Habakkuk 2:2).
~Make sure everyone on the team or anyone concerned is ADEQUATELY Informed of the plan and most importantly informed ON TIME.
NO DELAY in relaying the Info.
~Make sure every BACKGROUND info is adequately sought for 🔍.
As Mrs. Joyce Aryee, Ghana’s first woman Chair of the Chamber of Mines, would say if you INVITE a Speaker/Personality to grace an occasion for you, it is not when the person comes to sit down 👇 BEFORE you ask the person to write a SHORT Introduction about him/herself. You SHOULD have done this long before he/she came. Same as if you want to interview a noble personality for your paper, magazine or tv 📺 show, it is NOT on the day of the Interview that you begin asking him/her for directions to his house 🏠 or workplace.
Therefore if you go for a meeting and you KNOW you would Discuss something not everyone can talk about ON THE GO, send out the Agenda ahead of time and most importantly TASK one team member to ENLIGHTEN himself well enough on the issue before the meeting commences so that it would ensure for the EASY Facilitation of the meeting. E.g. Someone can check on the various bus 🚌 prices 💵 if a TRIP would be discussed in the meeting same as another person researching on the RECENTLY Occurring Ailments in your community or nation if a HEALTH Outreach would be discussed in the meeting.
So with these few but vital tips, I hope we can NOW PLAN BETTER cos the difference between your friend’s programme that went on Smoothly and yours was his BETTER Planning.
