Plan and Act

When it is obvious that the goals cannot be reached, don’t adjust the goals, adjust the action steps. (Confucius, early Chinese philosopher)

We’re into month two of the New Year and, perhaps, we’re disappointed in our progress in achieving the goals we had set for 2020. It would be good to follow this bit of Chinese wisdom. It may be easier to change the goals, but it will mean that we will certainly fall short of what we had hoped to accomplish. Better to reevaluate our action plan before moving on.

Commit your actions to the Lord, and your plans will succeed. (Proverbs 16:3)
