Do you plan before you act?

There is one common situations in the life of all of us. At times, we are asked to complete given assignments in a definite time. There are two ways of doing it. One, you immediately start working on the assignment. Two, you plan your every move, determine and arrange needed resources, and also determine what stands in the way of completing the assignment and how are you going to handle these bottlenecks. Once this is done, you put the plan in action.

In first case, you may or may not complete the assignment within given time. In second case, the possibility of successfully completing the assignment increases. Or in other words, you can say that possibility of a possible failure decreases.

Which plan would you prefer?

    Plannning is obviously the best way to execute any major task. This gives one an opportunity to break it into manageable sub-tasks, prioritise and sequence the sub-tasks. This will aslo enable to identify tasks that can done in parallel, identify resources, plan alternatives in case of non-availability of specific resources etc.

    However this may not work in emergency situations. One cannot wait to draft a plan to act.

    Second one is better as u r determined to do the particular things in time. Also the things get well arranged.

    The virtue lies in the struggle, not the prize.

    You are too young to appreciate. As you experience in life and as you commit mistakes and analyse, you will realise the folly of not planning.

    Can you tell me how companies grow,?
