I am now a teacher. I love my school. I love my co-workers. I love my students. But I don’t love the paperwork. The ongoing writing of IEPs and weekly lesson plans.
It’s kind of ironic because I love to write. But I don’t love to plan. An entire week at a time that is. I’ve always been a better “wing it” kind of girl. Taking one thing at a time as it came. Having a general idea in mind then flying by the seat of my pants to get it accomplished. I never was one to write rough drafts and rewrite, rewrite, rewrite. My final draft was my only paper.
Now that I’m older. I see the shortcomings of that type of planning. Or lack of planning.
One thing I’ve learned is it is good to plan. The old saying, if you fail to plan, plan to fail, is very true. Plans may change, but they are still the foundation for reaching goals. Measuring growth and success.
Did you know God has plans for us? He does! And they are plans for us to prosper. He didn’t wing it when he created us!
My advice to you. And me. Is to plan. To follow your instinct. Your passion. That’s God’s plan. He’s placed His plan before each of us. Find it. Follow it. Just watch and see what unfolds! You’ll be amazed at how God can prosper you! If you just stick to your plan.
Our life is the plan we teach to others. Let’s all make sure when we make our plans that we plan for others to succeed.
Here’s to Monday mornings at 7:30! May my lesson plans always be on time, on task, and on fleek!
For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope. Jeremiah 29:11
