The Perfect Plan

In The Slight Edge, Jeff Olson says to start with a plan, any plan. It doesn’t have to be perfect. In fact, it ought not to be. You shouldn’t spend so much time planning that you lose energy and enthusiasm in the start. Good advice for human projects. Later on, that plan will get tweaked and adapted as needed.

Isn’t it good to know that when we start the plan of God, it’s already mapped out for us, all the way through to the end? We don’t have to spend time and energy making up the plan. He’s already done it for us. We can jump into it immediately with our full energies, knowing that the plan is perfect and will carry us to the final goal.

The plan is simple, effective, appropriate to our needs and challenges, and immediately available to us. All we have to do is run with it.
