This Sparked Me!

Thomas Edison once said, "Good fortune is what happens when opportunity meets with planning." Thinking through and writing down your plan will help you focus on specific goals and keep you from being easily derailed. Don't miss out on opportunities to achieve success by failing to plan.

    I prefer to plan for success, That takes the negative out of the thought process.

    An old military saying is: Proper Prior Planning Prevents Poor Performance! This is a great reminder for all of us - Thanks for posting.
