Take a step! There is too much hype about planning, everybody seems to have a plan, we even know how to act but for the most part, we never do. When will start doing that nice plan on our bookshelf, that stuff we wrote in our pocket notebook, visit that friend, begin doing the things we love and enjoy? No matter how huge your intentions are, no matter what you believe in, if you are not action oriented, you are as good as the man who has no plan at all. Probably, you planning one huge stuff, waiting for the right time to do it and you hype it, dream it and begin to feel cool about it, if you do not act on it, you are as good as that other guy who just goes about with no plan, at least, he has not invested his energy to plan anything while you are just day dreaming, talking about it. people are probably tired of hearing talk about it. You have been saying you will go back to school, this is 3 years gone and yet you have no attempt to register because you are waiting for the right time. You want to write ICAN, you say it, you seem to know everything about it but you simply cannot get yourself to read because you say you are busy. If you really want it you will do a thing about it because if a thing is important, we surely will have the time for it. How come you never forget to brush your teeth and you never miss out on your favourite sitcom?
As Christians, we know that faith MUST be with works. It is everything, without works, your faith is dead. It does not matter how you say to people you are a better dressmaker, a better tailor, a better writer, a better footballer, a better model, a better preacher than someone who is already doing it. it changes nothing because you are just there doing nothing about it. People talk every day, all sorts of analysis; routine meetings without end, people just sit and listen to all the good intentions, all the “what we are going to do” grammar, resolutions, resources and people’s time are just wasted because in the end, nothing ever really happens. You come to meeting again, read the minutes, correct mistakes, adopt it and say the same things. The cycle continues and it is likewise with many of our private lives. It is like going to church, hearing great sermon, you are awakened but then you go back to who you use to be. You just shout Hallelujah like you were so touched by the message, dance to music, wave your hands but your life never changes because, you still do the same thing. You even forget the preaching before you reach your house.
The world is such that people want answers not analysis, results not prospects. Don’t sit there, do something about your plans, your dreams.
