Planning is great. There is a catch to it, though. Do not spend so much time organizing that you do not have time to do what you intended to do. McClellan was a great general for the Union forces during the Civil War in America. He was a thorough planner, yet he never was able to pin down exactly when to fight. Not planning the time was his downfall, and he lost his command.

We do not worry about the campaigns of war so much today. We worry about commerce. And we worry about our businesses and successfully growing them. We need time to plan. And we need time to do it. One without the other is futile to accomplish.

I usually try to avoid telling others what to do. However, work at having the time to plan and a time to accomplish. I feel things will work out better for you and your business if you try to work that way.

Thank you for being with me today. I hope to be with you again tomorrow.
