To be prepared is half the victory.
In preparing for battle I have always found that plans are useless, but planning is indispensable.
Every well built house started in the form of a definite purpose plus a definite plan in the nature of a set of blueprints.
We must ask where we are and whither we are tending.
A good plan today is better than a perfect plan tomorrow.
Planning ahead is a measure of class. The rich and even the middle class plan for future generations, but the poor can plan ahead only a few weeks or days.
Before you speak, listen. Before you write, think. Before you spend, earn. Before you invest, investigate. Before you criticize, wait. Before you pray, forgive. Before you quit, try. Before you retire, save. Before you die, give.
I'm just preparing my impromptu remarks.
Plans are nothing; planning is everything.
Reduce your plan to writing. The moment you complete this, you will have definitely given concrete form to the intangible desire.
A good system shortens the road to the goal.
The end we aim at must be known, before the way can be made.
