We all know of the business plan concept. We know that we can create a business plan and we can plan out where we want to be in a year or 2 or 5 or 10.
My take is, all to often, we don't plan. We just want to be busy. We wake up and ask ourselves, do I have enough to do today to keep myself busy? If I do then great, everything is fine and I am happy.
I could be wrong on this but it does seem guys in general just would rather not plan. They just want to be busy.
If this is actually the case, this could explain why all too often there is no planning. And then once in a while, someone comes around with a plan and they are able to say ok I have these milestones I want to achieve within a certain time frame and this is how I am going to do it.
It's people like this that tend to take their business to a higher level.
I have helped make a bunch of business plans in the past for lawn care business owners and I have them posted on here for free. Check this post for them
. But think about it. How often do we see any posts at all on business planning? Like never! I can't remember the last time someone asked about it or brought it up how to plan.
Why is that? Why are we so averse to planning? Is this hurting us?
