“He who fails to plan is planning to fail.”

— Winston Churchill

You can’t plan with unspecific goals

Without a plan, you don’t know if your current action leads you to your so-called goals

Then why don’t people have specific goals?

That’s why people shouldn’t make plans. With no plan, nothing can go wrong and if something spins out of control, it doesn’t matter. Whether you kill someone or betray your country.

How to set goals

Generate money

Save the money I generate.

Spend cautiously


  1. Specify your goals; otherwise, they won’t materialize.
  2. Set your goals using two variables: tangible goal and time.
  3. Create a rough plan to achieve the goals.
  4. Assess the feasibility of the plan according to your situation.
  5. Tweak your plan when necessary.
