What Are Your Plans?


“The plans of the diligent certainly lead to profit, but anyone who is reckless only becomes poor.” - Proverbs 21:5


Are you a good planner?  Or maybe you are a more of the “fly by the seat of your pants” type of person?  As a coach/leader, you need to be a great planner.  John Harbaugh, Head Football Coach of the World Champion Baltimore Ravens said this at a men’s Red Zone Conference: “Championships are won in the details.”

How are you with the details?  I have had the privilege to see the detailed 365-day plan written by college football and wrestling coaches.  Wow!!  When you get to see their daily practice plans down to the minute, it’s simply amazing!

 What about your plans as a coach/leader?  More importantly, what about your plans for your life?  Someone once said, we spend more time planning, organizing, and detailing our vacation than we do our lives.

As a follower of Christ, I know the Lord has a plan for my life.  I need to whole heartedly seek Him for His plan for my life.  All the plans that are made daily, hourly and minute by minute need to be sifted through the Holy Spirit.  Take some time today to seek the Lord for His plan for you.  Block off a day in the next month to seek Him for a longer term plan.  Read the book "Living Forward" by Daniel Harkavy and Michael Hyatt to learn more about life planning.

  1. Why do you think planning is so important?
  2. Who is the best planner you know?  Ask if you can spend some time with them.
  3. What plan does the Lord want you to make?
