Have a plan A

alexs-cert I cannot explain the importance of having a plan. Not just a plan for what you and your buddies are gonna do this weekend or what you’re planning on having for dinner. I am talking about in life. Make a plan A and don’t look back because sometimes you won’t get a chance to have a plan B. This is where you step up to the plate and swing away.

I encourage you to write your plan down. Break it down if you need to almost like a task list. This is what I did on September 1st. I wrote down my plan on how I was going to make a change in my life and get certified to do what I love so I could help make a change in others lives. It is now November 23rd and you can see in the picture above that I succeeded in what I set out to do.NOT every time will be a win, remember that and keep fighting if that is the case. I began by writing a 5 step plan, and #1 on the list was to sign up and start a certification process. Your step one does not have to be this of course but if you want to find a new job for example, then you have to sit down and make a list of places to grab an application from and or think of where would be a good fit for you.

Some people don’t like to make a plan A because they start to think “if this fails, what will be my plan B?” It’s okay to have a plan B in some scenarios but DO NOT just fall on this little pillow of a plan B you have or you might as well settle for average the rest of your life. I am not saying that if you attempt plan A and do not succeed, you’re a failure. I am simply saying to bring everything and hold nothing back when chasing after what you want in life, whether it’s a small plan or big plan. Don’t watch the perfect pitch pass you by when you thought to swing on it.

So what will your plan be? Are you planning on getting back in shape? Are you planning on chasing after that job opportunity you always dreamed of? Whatever it may be, attach YOUR plan from every angle and don’t always settle for plan B.


Thank you for the support and all the congrats on the cert. I appreciate it all!
