Planning: Know what you have to get done before the day begins by making a list the night before.  Saves time wasted in prime hours trying to decide where to start and what to do.

Organization: Put things you plan to do in the most logical order. “Use your head and save your feet.”  Prevents retracing steps, overlapping jobs.”

Self-disciple: Good plans and organization are both wasted if you don’t have enough self-discipline to do what you’ve planned. Plan your work and work your plan.

An idealist believes the short run doesn’t count. A cynic believes the long run doesn’t matter. A realist believes that what is done or left undone in the short run determines the long run. ~ Sidney J. Harris
