It never ceases to amaze me how many people neglect to see the need for some sort of plan.
It is also the part that just about every student I have ever had has complained about and resisted at first, but then later thanked me for as the key to their success.
Your plan/outline/blueprint does not have to be a long drawn out thing, but you DO need some sort of direction.
This way you NEVER ask the question
"what do i do next"
and you NEVER run across an unexpected expense. You know what you need before you need it.
It forces you to think things through and avoid mistakes.
Success is never a result of a home run the first swing, nor is it any one single thing you do.
It is consistently doing a series of small things, that when they all work together bring you the achievements you are striving for.
