Keep aiming high!













Have you ever heard the saying that says, how well we do in life depends on how well we've planned?

From my own experience I have become an ardent believer.

Most of us do a much better job of performing what we do at our jobs, then the time we spend actually planning ahead.

You know what I mean - we've all planned out great vacations and perfect weekend trips, right?

Problem is that we get in a habit of planning for the short term.

Long term planning is much harder - and when plans fail we tend to give up on them.

If they fail, and they will at times... what we should change is the plan and never give up on reaching the goal itself.

Being an ex-military man one of my favorite soldiers was Gen. Patton, in fact I met his son and have an autographed copy of his biography but I digress. 

General Patton wrote in one of his books, I can't remember which one, "In War, one does not plan and try to make the circumstances fit those plans. One tries to make plans fit the circumstances"

Each time we fail we must come up with an even better, bolder and better plan.

Don't ever be afraid of thinking, hoping or planning BIG! 

We have this one shot in life - this is it folk... so don't be afraid of testing yourself, your mettle and tempting your fate.

Michelangelo wrote, "The greatest danger for most of us is not that our aim is too high and we miss it, but that it is too low and we reach it."

Always aim high!

Make it a great dia!
