Planning vs. Failing

My fortune cookie the other night said, “Failing to plan is planning to fail.” 

One of my ongoing life lessons is that what I want to happen doesn’t just happen.  I can’t wish something into existence.  Believe me, I’ve tried.  Weight loss.  Cleaner house.  Less debt.  Um…nope.

If I don’t identify a clear next action step and then put it in the schedule – and then do it! – my best intentions turn out to be vain wishes.  Erin talked more about this in her vlog a couple of months ago.

What one thing can you do to make progress toward a goal?  Where will that one step fit best in your schedule?
