When I was a child, schoolteachers and relatives would often ask \"And what do you want to be when you grow up?\" I honestly didn\'t have a clue. My friends seemed to have got the hand of this and I discovered that the expected answers seemed to be focusing around jobs or careers \"I want to be a Fireman/Doctor/Train Driver\", or perhaps something bolder like \"Rock Star/Famous Actor\" _ or around money... \"I want to be a millionaire\". Apparently it didn\'t matter what you wanted to be _ it still required that you studied hard, preferably got all A Grades _ oh and it was critically important that you \"eat all your greens\". Quite how Brussels sprouts are a necessity for success has never been answered fully to my satisfaction. By the time I was a teenager, I was at the \"I dunno\" stage. And by the time I was choosing my A level subjects it seemed that my options were becoming limited. Artist was ruled out on the recommendation of my delightful art teacher who claimed that my lovingly crafted painting \"hurt her eyes\" and Author was ruled out because I had little taste for over_analyzing Jane Austin\'s Northanger Abbey.
Through planning, your major definite purpose is turned into a multi_task project with step_by_step details, clear deadlines and sub_deadlines. The good news is that with practice, you can learn and master this skill. The more you practice, the better you become. Hence, you will be one the most effective and influential people. Always organize your thoughts on a sheet of paper. There can be sub_lists for every list. Until you\'re comfortable with your plan, keep updating and revising it. Any skill can be learned and planning being a skill is not an exception. Over the years, there have been many studies into the reasons why some people achieve more than others. In an effort to determine the common denominator of success. The common denominator was \"action orientation.\" Those who achieve success take immense action. They make their moves very fast and their hands are always full.
