Program 3 Week 7 Organised Planning and Decision

Week 7 – Organised Planning & Decision 

Organised planning is the crystallisation of desire into action – the sixth step towards riches.

We have learned that everything that man creates or acquires begins in the form of desire. It is then taken into the workshop of the imagination where plans for its transition are created and organised.

We must develop plans that are faultless. To develop such plans requires experience, native ability, imagination, along with the cooperation of other people.

Without a sound plan nothing can be achieved and temporary defeat is part of the process. Temporary defeat is different to failure. No man can ever fail unless he quits. When temporary defeat shows up, it’s a signal that there is something wrong with our plans, so we must make course corrections and create new plans.

Leaders and Followers

When it comes to the application of these 13 principles there are two types of people in the world – leaders and followers.

Most great leaders began as intelligent followers. They developed the major attributes of leadership over time: unwavering courage, self-control, a keen sense of fairness and justice, willingness to assume full responsibility, definiteness of plans, and definiteness of decision.


Decision is the nemesis of procrastination and the seventh principle of this philosophy.

Acquire the consistent habit of reaching decisions quickly and definitely, and changing them slowly. Listen more than you talk, gather specialised knowledge and information relevant to your mission and vision, but be wary of other people’s opinions. Know your own mind and trust in your own decisions.

You can tell the world what you intend to do, but you must first show it. Deeds are what counts most, not words.

The world has a habit of making room for the man whose words are aligned with his actions and whose actions show that he knows who he is and where he is going.

Those who reach decisions promptly and definitively know who they are and where they are going.

Create Conditions

One of the most important decisions a person can ever make is the decision to free oneself from indecision.

Indecision leads to doubt, worry, and fear.

Our thoughts become things so we get what we think we will get.

Freeing ourself from indecision requires the firm decision to rid ourselves of those negative thoughts of lack and insecurity, from those nagging feelings that things will go wrong or won’t work out the way we want them to.

Freedom from indecision requires us to face up to the brutal facts. To face every hardship and adversity head on. And then to take decisive action.

When we make decisions concerning how we will deal with a problem we create new conditions.

Not just physical conditions in our outer world, but mental conditions that affect our inner world, that change our thoughts and feelings.

Once our mind has become aware that there is now a plan of action to deal with the problematic situation or circumstances, then it will settle, it will accept these conditions.

Rather than ruminate and repeatedly go over the problem, it will now feel to our mind that we can move forward.

Because of these new conditions in our mind, optimism, enthusiasm, and positive action will replace indecision, doubt, worry, and fear.

This is the life of the business owner and entrepreneur. Practiced problem solvers and solution finders. Always ready to meet the next challenge and the next spirit testing adversity head-on.
