DON’T JUST PLAN, TAKE ACTIONS

After letting us know why we need to PLAN BETTER and how to do it in Edition I, I tell you that it is not enough just to plan.

You need to TAKE ACTION.
I repeat TAKE ACTION.

For it is said that ‘A DROP of action is worth MORE than an OCEAN of intentions/plans‘.

Small action>>>Best Plan without Action

So after all the better planning, you need to take the NECESSARY actions to bring all those wonderful plans into fruition otherwise your life, programmes, events and the like would be JUST AS when you didn’t plan better. Known as BACK β¬… to Square 1.

TIMELINES are very essential and must be MET because they help you monitor the progress of preparation or progress of work. So you know whether you have to make EXTRA effort when you realize you’re lagging behind in the OVERALL Timeline.

Also, make it a conscious effort to update everyone concerned about the PROGRESS being made because even when you’re ON COURSE, it motivates others to keep to the Schedule and put in it the Remaining Effort required to beat the Final Timeline/Deadline so that we can all walk CHEST-OUT for the good work done.

Don’t LEAVE anything out. I mean anything out not even a pin that might be required. If you are organizing a Prayer πŸ™ Meeting say on a Friday Night, make sure after all top level planning and action concerning Speaker, Instruments, Publicity and the like, don’t forget to buy bags of sachet water for the members/congregation far before the meeting starts. I guess you know after praying for a while, the members would require water so as to CARRY ON.
So DON’T say “Oh, there’s a store close by to the church β›ͺ, so you WOULD buy some when you get there”. What if there’s been lights out aka DUMSOR there the whole day or the shop/store wasn’t opened that evening.

Yes, so you see πŸ‘€, you have take action on everything. And EVERYTHING means EVERYTHING, including ALL leaving NOTHING behind.

So as i said, it’s time we add ACTIONS to all our Plans.

Edition II Signing Out here for Edition III to start loading πŸ”ƒ.

Plans+Actions=Tremendous SUCCESS

#β€ŽBGIM‬ Christmas πŸŽ„ Came EARLY Edition I- IT’S TIME to PLAN BETTER

#β€ŽBGIM‬ Christmas πŸŽ„ Came EARLY Edition I

C__Data_Users_DefApps_AppData_INTERNETEXPLORER_Temp_Saved Images_images(2)

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 πŸŽ„ albeit also wanting to prepare everyone for the Christmas πŸŽ„ festivities with 4 Editions before 2015 ends since we were left with 2 Mondays excluding the Monday of the Christmas πŸŽ„ 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 πŸ’‘ to help us have a memorable and fruitful Christmas πŸŽ„ season.

#BGIM Xmas πŸŽ… 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 πŸ“ 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

PLAN BETTER.

What do I mean by Plan Better?
Let me give you a very key πŸ”‘ reflection I have realised this year 2015.
Looking πŸ‘€ at the way certain crucial programmes/events I was involved in at the church β›ͺ, work 🏒 or family πŸ‘ͺ level DIDN’T turn up πŸ‘† 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 πŸ”‘ 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 πŸ‘‡ taking into consideration any UNFORESEEN happenings.

~As much as possible, WRITE it DOWN πŸ“ 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 πŸƒ 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 πŸ”.
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 πŸ‘‡ 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 πŸ“Ί 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 πŸ’΅ 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.

β€ͺ#β€ŽTheSEQUEL‬ β€ͺ#β€ŽBGIM‬ WHY YOU CAN’T WORK IN A TEAM

This β€ͺ#β€ŽSEQUEL‬ to the last #BGIM would address the reason

WHY YOU CAN’T WORK IN A TEAM.

The reason is easily explained in this quote by Kareem Abdul Jabbar which says…

A team will always APPRECIATE a Great individual if he’s WILLING to Sacrifice for the Group

As seen in the last #BGIM, no one can do without a team on the path to success, for we all realise that highly successful corporations thrive on the strength of the Principle of Teamwork. So by now, most of us want to benefit fully from this Great Time-tested Principle.

BUT some of us, still upon trying to work in a team, just found out that we JUST couldn’t fit in. And the reason is very SIMPLE. It’s because however intelligent, talented, smart, skillful or so, we are, we believe we are better than >>> everyone else, so everything should be done our way. And this shouldn’t be so.

Remember the last #BGIM Quote on Teamwork says “None of Us is SMARTER than All of Us”

I have realised that sometimes, you being seemingly better, you might have a wonderful idea, plan or project but that plan would never come to fruition because we tend to bogus every other person’s thought. And we are shocked when our seemingly best plan ever fails because we forget every Great Vision is carried and run πŸƒ by the people who support the vision (aka your Team members). So after rubbishing everybody’s thought or suggestion, who do you expect to run πŸƒ your vision for you.

The Ghanaian proverb says ‘He that charts the road doesn’t know that the road is Crooked‘. So until you’re willing to listen πŸ‘‚ to and come down πŸ‘‡and relate with your fellow team members, you would never everΒ see that great vision or dream come to fruition.

It’s time we put sside all our Egos and work together as a Team for ‘TOGETHER WE ACHIEVE MORE

#BGIM IT’S TIME to WORK TOGETHER as a TEAM

#BGIM Bless God It’s Monday

IT’S TIME to WORK TOGETHER as a TEAM

Most of us forget that ‘TOGETHER Everybody Achieves More‘. Life is so interesting such that YOU CAN NEVER NEVER achieve it ALL on your Own. Even our Lord and Master, Jesus when He came to the earth worked in CLOSE ASSOCIATION with a TEAM.

A story is once told of two of the strongest men in a town being employed by a rich Β man to PUSH OVER two logs (tree) OFF his newly acquired land. Each was apportioned a particular log and hence would be PAID for pushing his own. Sadly, the tree logs where so HEAVY such that none of them could push, actually ROLLOVER his. They TRIED and TRIED and TRIED, all to NO AVAIL up until the time the richman asked why they couldn’t JOIN their FORCES together to Push each others own to get the Job DONE. And as Wisdom is ESSENTIAL always, they were able to ACCOMPLISH the TASK in NO time.

Most people SEEMINGLY better in the team do think they can do it on their own without the Others but they forget this two sayings of TEAMWORK…

The Group is Greater than the SUM of the Parts

&

None of us is as SMART than ALL of us

Let’s think about this during the Course of work this week and see how TRUE it is.

I know some are asking why does it SEEM I just CAN’T work in a Team or why my fellow team members are not SUPPORTIVE or COLLABORATIVE with me. I believe you should get the answer over the course of this week by the TIME next week’s #SEQUEL is ready, which would Address this ISSUE accordingly.
