34. Goals and Actions

“Our goals can only be reached through a vehicle of a plan, in which we must fervently believe, and upon which we must vigorously act. There is no other route to success.”

… Pablo Picasso

A Story: Planning ahead

Three  fish lived in a pond.

One was named “Plan ahead”, another was “Think fast” and the third was called “Wait and see”.

One day they heard a fisherman say he would be going to cast his net in their pond the next day.

“Plan ahead” said,” I am swimming down the river tonight”.

“Think fast” said, “I am sure I will come up with a plan”.

“Wait and See” lazily said,” I just can’t think about it now”.

When the fisherman cast his nets, “Plan ahead” was able to escape from his nets.

But “Think fast” and “Wait and see” were caught by the fisherman.

“Think fast” quickly rolled his belly up and pretended to be dead.

“Oh, this fish is no good!” said the fisherman and threw him safely back into the water.

However, “Wait and see” ended up in the fish market.

Learning:

A dream written down with a date becomes a goal

A goal broken down into steps becomes a plan

A plan backed by action makes your dreams reality
