Ina nutshell, personal strategic planning can be referred as adisciplined process, that is drafted by an individual, producingfundamental decisions and actions which are meant to guide and shapewho one is, what he/she do, and how, when and why, or of which aremeant to focus on ones future. It is important to have an action planin one’s life. This is because it acts as a guide to when and whyone is doing something. It also highlights the dependencies or thethings that one needs to do before he or she can accomplish a majorstep in life. One of the major importance’s of an action plan is tomake sure that one stays on schedule without missing the deadlinesset towards realization of set goals. This ensures that one is ableto achieve all the set goals that he or she had set (Coulson,2013).
Whenone has an effective action plan, it provides a chance and plan to onhow to achieve one’s priorities, goals/objectives. One is able tochoose what to do at what particular time, which implies that one isable to have control over his or her destiny. This helps one to shapehis or her end result of the action plan. In most cases, the goalsthat have been set by a person have various steps and timelines.These timelines must be realistic in order to make sure that they areachieved. One of the ways of making sure that the timelines arerealistic and achievable is by coming up with an action plan. This isbecause of the fact that a plan is able to check on the viability andreliability of the time that is allocated to every step. The actionplan also directs the sequence of the steps that are used in theachievement of the goals (Coulson,2013).
Oneis able to come up with small steps that are important and beneficialto the overall end result that is expected by the person planning. Anaction plan ensures that one stays focused on the objective by makingsure that one is in control of what he or she does in life. The planensures that one is able to motivate himself towards achievement ofthe process. This is because it gives a person a long-term visionthat is coupled with a short-term motivation. This ensures that oneis able to track and record his or her progress as well as,achievement.
