“It’s not the plan that is important, it’s the planning.”  Graeme Edwards

Most of the time we try to stand alone in our decision-making, and at times this can create problems.  We need something other than our own understanding, we need the kind of resourcefulness that comes from above.

When making decisions, and looking forward to the best possible outcome, we need Jesus Christ, as well as our allies; especially when utilizing what’s in our hearts, that is pure.

We need help, even Rome wasn’t built-in a day; “You win by making tough decisions and building coalitions.”  (An alliance, a partnership.)  John Engler

The consequences of making bad decisions often hurt our closest friends and family, causing us to have regrets.  Still we must hold ourselves accountable.  “He that is good at making excuses is seldom good at anything else.”  Benjamin Franklin

One way to avoid the effects of making bad decisions is to make sure our value’s are clear, and we can stay committed to our decisions, while remaining flexible in how we approach them.  Sometimes there is a better way, although it was not our approach to gain the same or similar outcome.

Keep in mind: “A wise man makes his own decisions, and an ignorant man follows the public opinion.”  Get the facts straight before making a decision, for sometimes they can be life changing.

When we make up our minds to “get the job done,”  “Productivity is never an accident.  It is always the result of a commitment to excellence, intelligent planning, and focused effort.”  Paul J. Meyer

“The greatest battles of life are fought in the silent chamber of the soul.”  David O. McKay

FYI: When making up our mind, and promising to commit to a decision we have made, Matthew 5:36-37 ( The Amplified Bible.) sends out a clear message;

And do not swear by your head, for you are not able to make a single hair white or black.  Let your Yes be simply Yes, and your No be simply No: anything more than that comes for the evil one.

Lord Jesus we pray that in our decision-making when we choose wrongly, give us the strength to rebound and change a negative into a positive.  In Jesus name we pray.

Please share this text with everyone.  And yes it is alright to use my essay’s to “Spread the Word,” as long as you send at link directly back to me. Tell them they can sign up for an email alert at, or  Want to send me an email, do so at   Thank You!

    I see articles online all the time and some are quite interesting. Since I’ve written quite a few articles myself, and even published a few books, it could be helpful for me to get my name out there by presenting my articles. How would I go about putting them online for everyone to access, and could I make money posting them? This may be a silly question but, do people generally seek copyright for their online articles? Thanks..

    I have some videos that say “includes third party content” and others that say “blocked in some countries” (due to copyright).. Is it still possible for me to become a partner (considering I have all of the other requirements filled).

    I’m planning to start my web site soon but I’m a little shed with every little thing. Do you suggest beginning with a complimentary platform such as WordPress or even get a paid alternative? There are a lot of alternatives around which I’m entirely baffled.. Almost any recommendations? Cheers lots!

    I am looking for a great blogging website, but there are just too many! I am actually looking for a website that’s free and there can be many bloggers on one site. For example, I created a blog and people who I choose (friends and family) can easily start blogging on the site. If I could easily update it from my iPod touch that would be nice. And if I could personalize easily. (Have my own logo and background) Note this is not mandatory! Thank You’s ahead!.

    Please answer both questions completely:. . What’s the easiest way to make sure that if I copyright something, that it’s mine without have to copyright each article or blog individually?. . ALSO: . . I’m a poet and I want to copyright my work without have to pay “per poem” – how can I do that, but also be able to get things copyrighted regularly?.

    I’m trying to see how can you prevent the content from being removed on a youtube video due to copyright. I really just want to see what material can you use so that youtube will not remove the content. Like with music, should you use music from like a CD instead of downloading it from like itunes? Can you give me any suggestions?.

    I am looking to start a blog, though I don’t know which is the best way to go about this. Some of my friends recommend buying a domain from iPage, and then using WordPress. However, I feel that this is limiting. My next option is through TypePad as it appears to have the level of control desired, though this is relatively expensive.. . So my question is as follows: Which one is a better idea? Which one would you personally use?. . Thank you..

    I would like to express thanks to you for rescuing me from this circumstance. After searching throughout the world wide web and meeting recommendations which were not pleasant, I was thinking my entire life was well over. Being alive minus the solutions to the difficulties you have resolved by way of your main short post is a crucial case, as well as those which could have badly affected my career if I hadn’t noticed the website. Your own personal expertise and kindness in playing with the whole lot was useful. I’m not sure what I would’ve done if I hadn’t discovered such a step like this. I am able to now relish my future. Thanks for your time very much for your skilled and results-oriented guide. I will not hesitate to suggest the sites to anyone who requires recommendations on this area.
