Inspiring Stories About Planning

Planning is vital for people in all walks of life. Going through life without a plan is like building without a blueprint. I am a firm believer in strategic planning.

I can say confidently that it is easier said than done. If it takes this much work just to get a birthday party right, I can’t imagine how I am going to explain to him the complex realities of relationships and dating.
