Every time when we tried to run a marathon, we willfolow a plan for 18 weeks. If we want to competeseriously in half marathon, we will follow a 2 monthplan or 3 month plan as well, so we can have a good performance at the race. The plan is in great detail, like what kind speed workout on Tuesday, how manyrepeats, how long we will run the intervals, and therest time between the intervals. For tempo runs,how many miles should we run and at which speed, etc.So we will have a very detail plan. And if everything goeswell, we should do well after following the plans.
For the purchase(or refinance), we will have the plansas well. We will need prepare the down payment, what is the location of the property, what kind of pricerange we will purchase, and which loan program we will take.We will make the plans with the loan agents so that wecan make sure the buyers can qualify.
When I was in the hiking today, I thought about my reading.I did not do well for my reading this year. The main reason was that I did not have a plan. I would read a few chapterof one book, then forget it for a few weeks, and then pick it up again, and forgot what I read/finished. So I thinkI need a plan.
I will finish the book of Jim Cramer's Getting Back to Even(I know this is outdated book, but I need to understand somebasic investment concept).Alraedy finished 76 pages.Total 334pages. So 258 pages left. Plan to read 25 paes a day, so I paln to finish it May 13th(10 days with one day extrafor the cushion. Will update the status of this booksonce in a while, and final status May 13th.
