Larger the goal, larger the preparation

Tending the garden of the heart - Day 18

The larger the goal, the larger the preparation to achieve that goal.

Because we have a large family, food tend to go faster, therefore we must grow a garden that's equally measurable to supply our needs.

Measuring approximately 4 - 5 times bigger than the previous garden, we have a lot of work ahead of us. The preparation period is the essential groundwork to the success of this ambitious undertaking.

The kind of plans you make will be determined by the size of your goal. Small plans produce small results and if you have big goals, small plans just won't cut it.

You must first determine your needs and how much you can handle so you're not overwhelmed and then become discouraged. If you have big goals to change your life but find you're overwhelmed by big plans, take it one segment at a time. Determine your big goal then divide your big goal into smaller bite size goals and take it one at a time.

That's exactly the format that our garden has taken on. Initially the size of the garden was marked off to show the area that's being worked on. Then everyday, Dad and our girls go out and till the ground one area at a time. We have a timeline we're working towards. The ground needs to be ready in time for the last frost in order to transplant the seedlings.

What preparations do you need to do to transplant the seedlings of your dreams into motions?
