Not an idea, floating around in your head.
But a plan.
I have been asking this question for years, especially when someone tells me their marriage isn’t turning around.
90% tell me they DON’T have a plan. I tell them, “that is the starting point.”
If you don’t have a plan, you don’t have a map. If you don’t have a map, it is tough to get to where you want to get.
I know: you have books, CD’s, DVD’s, study courses, articles, and all sorts of other information on how to save your marriage.
Information is just data. When you take that information and process it (think and ponder about it) about your current situation, you arrive at knowledge. Contrary to popular opinion, knowledge is not power. It has no power until you apply it.
When you apply knowledge, and you keep applying it — learning from it and allowing it to transform you, then you arrive at wisdom!
But if you have no plan — no written plan for how you plan to save your marriage — the information is just information. Interesting. But not transforming.
In this week’s audio, I discuss several reasons why a written plan is so important, and how to get started on your plan.
Remember this quote, as it applies to having a plan:
Consult your plan, not your emotions.
Whenever you allow your emotions to call the shots, you will end up with those who see no change. But when you consult your plan (you do have a plan, right?), new possibilities emerge.
Time to make a plan!
