Recently I did a program for a law firm and began by asking the lawyers:

How many of you prepared a written business plan with goals for 2015?

Only a few lawyers raised their hands. So, suppose I ask you:

Did you have a business plan for 2015?

I have posted several blogs over the years trying to encourage and convince you to prepare a plan. Here are a couple of quotes I like:

Vision without action is a daydream. Action without vision is a nightmare. Japanese Proverb

Most people aim at nothing and hit it with amazing accuracy. Jim Cathcart

I hope those quotes convince you. One more thing: The two most important assets you have are your time and your energy. If you have no plan, how do you know if you are using those assets wisely?

My next post will give you further ideas on preparing your 2016 Business Plan.
