Part 6 of a Mini Series on Building a Successful Business
As discussed in the last section, Your Master Plan Requires Strategic And Tactical Planning:
The first section of your Master Plan should list out how you are going to accomplish your Long-Term Objective over a period of years. What do you have to do? What do you have to accomplish? What barriers have to be dealt with? How are you going to do that?
The second step of your Master Plan should list out those broad tactical actions that you need to accomplish. In other words, how are you going to take those strategy steps and turn them into doable actions that are accomplishable?
With those two plans well understood, we now look at the breakdown of Things-To-Do known here as your Action List.
Action List (Things-To-Do List)
Bill Gates may have had the Long-Term Objective of bringing to the people of earth an inexpensive computer system that would allow them to do their business.
His Purpose could have been to provide a means for people to write letters, perform math, look at pictures, and so on, all with one convenient computing machine.
Ultimately, that Purpose would have been something that drove him to make it all happen.
His Master Plan would have had numerous actions. As an example, one of the initial actions would have been to acquire a good, working operating system.

What Gates Accomplished
Whether he accomplished this in your eyes and whether there are flaws with any of his products is not the point here.
The point is that he set out to achieve his Long-Term Objectives and Purposes and then became one of the richest men in the world on record. That is quite a feat.
He could not have accomplished any of that without a Long-Term Objective clearly envisioned, a Purpose, and many Master Plans with individual and doable actions to accomplish (even if they were not all written down, he still knew the actions that had to be accomplished).
If he did not have those items in his crosshairs to attain, he very well could have gone out clubbing and partying most of the time.

“We’ve taken a huge step forward in solving the world’s nutrition problems by creating a completely new category of health supplements. They are one hundred percent non-GMO and derived directly from seeds."
There’s no real problem with that, it has its place, but without these points (Purpose, Long-Term Objective, Master Plan, and Action List (or Things-To-Do List) that are necessary for action to occur in a big way, nothing of any magnitude or worth would get accomplished.
We all need relief at times. However, as my friends and associates have heard me say for many years, it is what you do on nights and weekends that determines your future because most people will never get rich just doing their routine jobs.
(Those that have gotten wealthy from their routine jobs have still put in the midnight oil, time and time again, to achieve what they now have.)
Another Point Of View
Or look at it this way: If you only ever worked a day job, and never did anything else to attain a future (this includes taking classes and reading important guides such as this one) then the odds are extremely rare that you will ever get rich.
Rare indeed is the person who got rich working only 40 hours a week and goofing off the rest of the time.)
The way to success depends on your actions, not the time.
The way to success often requires you to work long hours to blast through the barriers to get what you want.
Thus, a balance is needed between producing (getting the job done) and taking a break when needed.
