#99 - A goal without a plan is merely a wish
Every journey needs to be planned to ensure its success. The simpler the plan the easier it is to follow. Because complexity is the enemy of execution. A goal without a plan is merely a wish.
“Many people fail in life, not for lack of ability or brains or even courage, but simply because they have never organized their energies around a goal.”
Your Plan must clearly reflect the below
Where are you? A
Where you want to be exactly? B
Small objectives and milestones which help close the gap between A and B.

“nothing can stop Human will in action, driven by inspiration, seduced by Burning desire, tempered by reason, guided by intelligence, fuelled by passion” Jim Rohn
Action - You do not manage time because you cannot control time. You do not manage priorities, you have priorities. You can only manage your actions. Have a clearly defined action Plan with end objective in mind.
“Knowledge is not power – Action is! execution trumps knowledge every day of the week.” Anthony Robbins
