When a nation is given independence, the first thing they do is to plan for her greatness in form of a constitution. They would use as many days as possible for this foundational work, because of its importance to the future of such a nation. I believe you would want to agree with me that the laws, rules and regulations about how the country is to be governed, all is a kind of planning for her greatness in the league of nations.
When a family is to be founded, both parties superficially involved would leave no stone unturned for the drive to a successful destination. The groom and the bridegroom would make sure that at least, if they don’t have a business, a house, and a car of their own yet, they have a job and a rented apartment for a safe take-off.
When a child is to be put to bed, preparation for its coming would have been planned for. From its inception, everything needful for its safe arrival would have been taken care of. As the parents are doing so, the hospital is doing the same. If a thorough preparation is not done, it may lead to abortion or stillbirth. God forbid IJN!
Whatever you want to achieve next year (2019), this is the time to start thinking and planning about it. Do you say what about this year (2018)? You ought to have planned for it last year. Nonetheless, it is not too late, you can start planning and at the same time executing your plan. Hence, you have a lot to do this year, as you’re executing your plan for the New Year (2018), you’re also planning for the next year (2019).
For any project, journey, or adventure, planning is an essential foundational work to be carried out, in order to have a safe trip and eventually a successful destination, all things being equal. It is as old as the universe itself. It’s going to be a good thing to continue to remind ourselves about the essence and importance of planning until the world is no more.
FOR WHICH OF YOU, INTENDING TO BUILD A TOWER, SITS NOT DOWN FIRST, AND COUNTS THE COST, WHETHER HE HAS SUFFICIENT TO FINISH IT? Luke 14 28
