Zig Ziglar on the power of focus, planning, and preparation. I’ll tell you, I’m admittedly NOT a great planner and preparer, I just want to go from idea to selling it. And for focus, my wife, the brain researcher, says I’m classic ADHD, though I won’t let them test me. However, to achieve success, you’ve got to have some focus, planning, and prep.

So I asked this question on Facebook, “Planning is necessary. But for those of you who do NOT enjoy planning and preparing (like me), and are just eager to get to the doing, what tools, strategies, or habits do you use to help with your needed planning and preparations?” We had great comments and ideas to this and I talked through them with my co- host, Michelle Prince.
