a Biblical thought...
But Jesus said to them, "Only in his hometown and in his own house is a prophet without honour." And he did not do many miracles there because of their lack of faith.
(Matthew 13:57-58)

a Book thought...
The greater danger for most of us is not that our aim is too high and we miss it, but that it is too low and we reach it. (p76)
a Dave thought... by John Maxwell
Passive planning happens when leadership allows the raft to travel downstream at the mercy of the current rather than steering, rowing, and turning.
Panic planning happens only after the raft is in trouble. At this point, all of the organization's resources are scrambled in a reactionary pattern in an attempt to solve the problem.
Scientific planning is viable, but can be laborious, mechanical, and often ends up abandoned in the process. Imagine if a raft guide constantly tried to measure the depth of the water, the distance between rocks, the wind speed, and the water current.
Principle-centred planning is the key to effectiveness. It is the artistic or leadership approach. Principle-centred planning recognizes that life in general can't be graphed on a chart, but sees that planning still remains essential.

Just a thought
