Planning The Day Is As Important As Planning Life

Do we have a plan of our life. The Parents who have children may plan something to shape the future of their children. We may sometimes plan to spend our life by undertaking tours or picnic or celebrating the aniversaries of the household members. But other than that what plans do we have in life? The life of businessmen perhaps is busy planning and executing. But the common or ordinery people do they have a task for planning? Perhaps all are not called to have business but all have a life to life and a right to live in harmony. If we consciously plan our every day to spend or live it fully by being more productive, it may make us more harmonious and being accountable to what we do may bring us success and great satisfaction. Every evening, before retiring to bed if we sit and do an evaluation of our life and how we spend our day, what has contributed to succeed and what might have gone wrong, the causes of our success and the causes for our failure may help us do a resolution how to plan the next day to live more better.

Sure I agree with you. We cannot live at random chances. The one who builds the house without calculating and foreseeing the expenditure and the need will fail for sure.

Not everyone of us are good at time management and I do agree with you that time planning is important if one wants to live a more meaningful life. No proper planning can disorientate a person making life dull. A day is wasted if we don't make full use of the time given to us to utilize.

Planning needs a balanced approach. I remember a quote written by someone... "The Abess having so much to do began her day. The first thing that she did was that she went to bed to sleep" I smile.. Sleep brings better advice how to do discernment to spend the day without conflict

Planning the day is only important if you are in time need and have a very busy day. Planning can make one very tired too. During vacations I am not really planning anything. I just get out of my bed, do a lot by hand (laundry, cooking, cleaning, walk a lot, etc) and I am never in time need or never feel I had no time for me. I also don't need to plan celebrations and arrange everything in between.

Planning will help us make some discernment or adjustment. Planning will often spare us from straining ourselves because we are in haste for many matters.

I think that it is very important to be able to plan the things that you're going to get done during the course of your day, because if you don't you might find that the day simply slips away from you without even noticing that it is happening. When I don't plan my day and set targets for myself that I want to reach, I often find that I am sitting around until well after midday having achieved nothing with my morning. If I did this every day, it would mean that I was effectively wasting 50% of my life, which obviously isn't a good thing.

When you plan you will be watchful and vigilant. You will not allow anything to go in vain but to get the maximum out of minimum investment and render all members happy and peaceful

Honestly speaking, most of the time I don't plan. I just attend to whatever come along that day. I only plan if it like a holiday or something else which really needs planning but day to day activities. I don't.

Yes some plan at important occasions otherwise all the home members follow the daily routine. In such homes there may be boredom. Those who plan their every day will be tasty in making their homes as a happy abode

Of course! I feel everyone is involved in some or the other planning activities. A home maker will have to plan a day before, so that she can buy necessary raw materials to prepare tomorrow's food. As soon as we get our salary, we will have to plan as how to or how not to spend it each day, so that we are left with some money at the month end. A kid plans when to complete his games so that he can return home soon and start his homework without getting much scoldings from his parents! As you have said, even I do try to recollect the happenings of that particular day before retiring to bed. In the process, I might end up planning for the next day or even future!

Hello there. I visualize the phenomenon in the case of individuals a shade differently and may I propose it on this discussion? Assuming I'll be heard, I will say, in contrast with what businesses do, human beings must 'CONTEMPLATE' & 'REFLECT'. There is nothing really new though, the former is akin to 'planning' & the latter to 'reviewing'. Individuals are not subject to the same formal process as to be make a 'detailed plan' and knowing too much planning could lead to boredom as well as skipping implementation, I thought it is better we broadly contemplate what we wish doing: the next day, the week or month or a few months down the line. And then periodically reflect on how has it been going and whether adjustments would be needed. While agreeing with the basic proposition but slightly modifying not just the terminology but also the underlying effort, what in effect I'm saying is that individual endeavors have to build in fair amount of flexibility. Hope it agrees.

I do agree that planning your day before action is a prominent step in being productive and maximizing allocated time! To execute a plan is easier, and more organized then approaching your tasks at random or judgementaly. Typically, it becomes harder to remind yourself of neccessary action so having those actions already mapped helps to prevent inefficiency and a total waste of your time. So if you have a complicated day, do as I do, and organize steps or a list in which to carry out your plans.

I do think that it makes sense to plan your life out, make goals, and such. Try to find out what we want to do with our lives. I can also understand planning out your day a little bit, but I don't usually plan to the point where every minute is planned out. After all, things might happen which will change things in a day, which is why I don't plan every minute of everyday. I will just have a general idea of what I want to do and/or what I need to get done.

Hi srjac,I agree with you wholeheartedly ! Unless we plan our day we may end up without actually accomplishing anything that we intended to ! Once we make a list of things to do and follow it through, we get to do most or at least a few of the things listed...I have seen it happen with me and now as you rightly said I too make a mental note of everything that needs to be done the next day at home and other chores that I need to do after leaving home...all the best and have a nice evening
