I lila—nning to Succeed 1 You have probably heard the saying “if you fail to plan. you plan to fail." At the project or task levels, poor planning is one of the main reasons projects fail, fall behind schedule or miss their deadlines. Without adequate planning. it is difficult to understand what will take to complete a project successfully. Lack of planning leads 5 to inadequate preparation, unexpected problems, and poor execution. Poor planning is the worst practice due to various reasons. l-‘irstly. some do not ; write down their plan. When you do not have written plans. you are using your Imemory to keep track of things. Good planning forces you to think about your projects before doing them and to put your thoughts down on "paper". This can lfi prevent many project failures and delays. Not only that, without plans, it is difiicult or impossible to get a clear picture of all the things you are working on and what still needs to be done. Planning allows you to identify all your projecLs and tasks and to understand what it will really take to complete them. Without planning, you would not have a clear idea of what you 15 need to do and you would not be able to prioritize your time properly. When you do not have clear priorities, you are much more vulnerable to distractions and unexpected events. Reasonable people, who think logically, would never venture out into the wilderness without proper planning and preparation because it could easily cost 2t} them their lives. The location and duration of the trip make a big difference in the type and level of preparation that is required. lack of adequate preparation in your own projects cart easily cause them to fail or fall deep behind schedule. Without proper planning. it is difficult to anticipate and avoid major problems and risks. Without actively monitoring and avoiding these risks, they can easily 25 sidetrack or even cause your project to fail. Planning is one of the tnost important activities in tinrc management. [1 has been estimated that every minute spent planning can save three in execution, yet it is one of the least practiced. in fact. for tnost people. this worst practice is not poor planning, but no planning at all. ."lt'i There are many reasons people give for not planning: not enough time, do not l really need it. it would not work or it is too constraining. All these reasons are ' merely rationalisations. They arejust excuses. . i First of all, they do not understand the value of planning. Many people get into a I damaging practice because they do not know arty better. They do not know what 35 their lack of planning is costing them. People who do not understand the value of I planning often claim that they do not need to plan because they are doing well i without any planning. The reality is that they are doing well despite their lack oi" planning, not because they are not planning. Effective planning would make them 5 even more productive and capable of achieving even better results. Continued... crown-tuck ' d-"I I I.l-I| lltli‘l? IELF t‘tD'u'.-".NCED _ _ _ IE JANI IAINr Zilltl Next. planning is a practice that does not provide immediate Results. People who want to get their payoff now will find it difficult to escape their practice of poor planning. Lack of planning nev'cr brings success. To add to that, many people do not know how to plan effectively. This is probably the most common reason why a lot of people do not plan: they just do not know how to do it well. People who think they know how to plan but really do not may ltottestly believe tltat they do not have enough tinte to plan? that they do not need to plan or that planning does not work for them. All ol'these statements may be true of poor planning? which can often be worse than no planning. However, these statements do not hold true for effective planning. Besides that; there are those who have not climinated obstacles to effective planning. Other worst practices at the project or task management level may be blocking or undoing the effectiveness of your planning efforts. You need to get rid of these obstacles before you will see all the benefits of your planning. The best way to escape the practice of poor planning is to learn to plan effectively and to be consistent. Adapted from: Constandse. Ft. (EU-UT]. Time Management Worst Practice Poor Planning.
