Planning can actually be a lot of fun. Think about the last vacation or party you coordinated where everything went just right. Remember the feeling of accomplishment and pride you, the planner, had afterwards. People thanked you for the hard work and the time you put into hosting such a wonderful event. What if you could have the same sensational feeling the day after your retirement party? You wake up the next day knowing you planned it out just right. Sounds good, but, unfortunately, too many credit union members and employees are only hoping to attain their goals because they are not prepared. As Benjamin Franklin said, “By failing to prepare, you are preparing to fail.”
