"Plan Your Work & Work your Plan": Great Life Skill or Waste of Time  

We’ve all heard this saying, right?  The origins of the saying are unknown but it has certainly been used by many.  Both Vince Lombardi and Margaret Thatcher had been known to utilize it. Victor Hugo, author of both Les Miserables and The Hunchback of Notre Dame had a similar quote,“He who every morning plans the transaction of the day and follows out that plan, carries a thread that will guide him through the maze of the most busy life.  But where no plan is laid, where the disposal of time is surrendered merely to the chance of incidence, chaos will soon reign.”

The phrase has been documented as being used in church sermons dating back to the 1880s and there is a bible verse that touches on the topic; Proverbs 21:5 New Living Translation, “Good planning and hard work lead to prosperity, but hasty shortcuts lead to poverty.”
