As we round up this series, let us examine the type of plans we should have in place for the coming year.
You should have plans along the following lines:
The headings may not be limited to the above, this is just a guide. Now, along these lines, some of your plans may be short term, medium term or long term.
Your Short Term plans may be weekly, for instance under Spiritual line, you may plan to have one vigil every week or fast once a week or read a book of the Bible every week. It could also be a monthly plan, like saving an amount every month towards a project or investment.
Your medium term plans are those with time line of up to two to three years. For instance, you may have a plan to move to your own house in the next two years. This plan will definitely dovetail into your short term plan or monthly plan of saving and doing some parts of the project.
Long term plans are those above three years. You may plan to become a professor in five years time, depending on your qualification now. It means you must build up short and medium term plans to achieve this goal.
In summary, as the year ends, draw up your plans now and set measurements indices. Don’t set too much plans. Make your plans SMART. Simple, Measurable, Articulate, Realistic and Time bound.
Wishing you all a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year in advance.
We will be having a break on the broadcast and will resume on 9th January 2017 by His Grace. See you there! Shalom!
