8 Principals To Live By



Good planning and insight… bring… you honor and respect.

Proverbs 3:21-22 NLT

People who set goals accomplish much more than people of equal

education and ability who don’t. With that in mind, build these eight

principles into your life.

(1) Decide what you want. But first consult God. Many are the plans

in a man’s heart, but it is the Lord’s purpose that prevails (Pr 19:21


(2) Think on paper. Writing your goals down gives them a sense of

permanency, plus it energizes you. Good planning and insight… bring…you

honor and respect. Wishy-washy objectives won’t get you where you want

to go.

(3) Establish a deadline. Without a definite beginning and ending it’s easy to procrastinate and get nowhere.

(4) Make a list of what you need to do to. Keep it before you at all times; it’ll give you a track to run on.

(5) Convert your list to a plan. Decide what you need to do first

and what you can do later. An organized plan is always better than

trying to carry stuff around in your head.

(6) Act immediately. Be very careful, then, how you live, not as

unwise but as wise, making the most of every opportunity (Eph 5:15-16

NIV). Do something! A mediocre plan that’s implemented beats a

brilliant one that’s not.

(7) Do something every day to move you forward. Build it into your

schedule. For example, read systematically through your Bible, call a

specific number of clients, engage in physical activity for a given


(8) Have a goal you’re willing to devote your life to. And keep your

eye on that goal at all times. Teach us to number our days aright, that

we may gain a heart of wisdom (Ps 90:12 NIV).
