To have the key that will open every door is a true blessing. Unfortunately, no one but you should create and shape that key. It is a combination of your knowledge, persistence, character, behavior, and many other good qualities.

Dictionary says it clearly: Planning is the process of making plans for something that you want to accomplish. We have heard the famous quote of Dwight D. Eisenhower – “Plans are nothing. Planning is everything” and it describes the essence of this process.
To plan means to take into consideration the main steps that you should do in order to achieve what you dream of. Big plans without appropriate planning and consistent actions will always be only wishes.
If you are struggling with the process of planning, you can always learn new techniques in the area: action, tactical, operational planning, and so on.
Do not forget, your goals should be SMART – specific, measurable, achievable, realistic, and time-specific.
