What is planning?

“Planning is not deciding in advance every step we are going to take and then doggedly following those steps.  Rather, planning is an arrow which points a direction of the future.  You lay out the steps, take one step, and then re-plan.  Planning thus becomes a road map toward the future.  But unlike most road maps it’s one which we can constantly improve as we move further and further toward the future.

So what is planning?

  • Planning is being tomorrow-minded
  • Planning is pre-determining a course of action
  • Planning is trying to understand God’s will and responding to that understanding by our actions.

— Edward Dayton, Tools for Time Management
