When you are taking a trip somewhere for work or vacation, from the moment you start planning, everything you do is to get you closer to your final destination. You figure out where you are going, progress. You figure out when you are going, progress. You figure out how you are getting there, progress. You book your hotel, progress. You book your flight progress. You book your rental car, progress. You plan your outfits, progress. You pack your luggage, progress. You set your alarm to make sure you get up on time to make your flight, progress. You get up, progress. You pack up the car, progress. You drive to the airport to get to your flight, progress. You take a flight and it takes you west for a layover or two before takes you east, progress. You get to your destination air and you get your rental car and head to your hotel, progress. You check in, progress. You get to your room, destination.
When we take trips, most of what mentioned you don't really think about, you just do. You understand that these are the things that are necessary for you to get to your destination. But all these things have to be done in order to get to your destination and have all that you need.
What is your destination, whether business or personal, and did you plan out your steps? Do you know what you need to get to where you want to be? Do you know what the steps are and in what order that need to be done? You can't just show up at the airport and get on a plane without first purchasing the ticket. You can't purchase a ticket until you know when and where you are going. The Bible says in Habakkuk 2:2 - 3 to “...Write the vision And make it plain on tablets, That he may run who reads it. 3 For the vision is yet for an appointed time; But at the end it will speak, and it will not lie. Though it tarries, wait for it; Because it will surely come, It will not tarry." What it is basically telling you is that whatever it is that you have in head that you want to do, write it down because that vision won't always be in your head. Not only that, but the opportunity to execute that vision is only for a specific time. There is a quote from Leonard Ravenhill that I love that says, "The
opportunities of a lifetime must be seized within the lifetime of the opportunity."
Don't let your vision and the planning of the action that you take on that vision outlast the true opportunity you have to execute it. Don't sit on it and don't wait on anyone else. It is your vision, your plan why are you waiting on other people to co-sign. It was given to you for such a time as this.
Just like we plan a trip, plan your vision. Write down what it is. Figure out when you want to complete it by and then plan out the steps you need to get there. Just like taking a trip to somewhere you haven't been, you ask someone that has been, where you should go and what you should do when you get there. Although they may not have been to the exact location as you, they've been to the area and they have experience. If you don't know all the steps someone ask for some assistance. Someone may not have to same vision as you, but they have completed their own vision.
Don't just think about it, do something with it. Write your vision and execute it.
