仔細思考和準備合適的計畫

PONDERING AND PREPARING PROPER PLANS

 

你對2019年的計劃是什麼?你想發展自己的業務、希望得到升遷或是尋找報酬更多的新工作?或是想換跑道,又或者你最大的願望是自我提升?

 

隨著一年的結束,現在是我們很多人會做兩項例行活動的時候了:反省過去的一年,並開始一個新計畫。計劃比反省來得好。因為我們無法改變過去,我們只能反省。然而,在制訂新計劃時,我們可以重新開始,確定我們想要做什麼、何時、如何、在哪裡、甚至為什麼要做這些事。

 

設定目標是計畫中很常見的一環。從商業的角度來看,我們能夠用過去一年所發生的事以及對未來的期待,設定目標來達到一定程度的利潤、生產力和增長。當然,設定目標對個人也很有用,我們可以為個人和職業發展設定目標,也能評估我們的進度和時間。

 

我們也許希望在去年完成某件事,或者為實現我們尚未達到的目標而做重大的改變。俗話說的好:「不進則退」,因此我們會制定計劃,希望自己在未來幾天、幾個月或是幾年變得更好。

 

關於有效的目標設定和計劃,有無數的文章和書籍都討論過,但它們很少考慮到聖經中提出的指導原則。這些原則對於了解我們為何訂目標和計劃的「原因」特別有用。因此,今年在我們反省和制訂新計畫時,可以參考下面一些原則:

 

致富。 對很多人來說,致富是做計畫時一個主要的目標,是獲得理想生活方式的能力。關於這一點,聖經建議我們保持正確、腳踏實地的觀點。「不要勞碌求富,休仗自己的聰明。你豈要定睛在虛無的錢財上嗎?因錢財必長翅膀,如鷹向天飛去。」(箴言234-5節)。

 

卓越。 我們應該不斷努力,盡我們所能把工作做到最好,不是為了我們自己的利益,而是為了彰顯我們所代表和服事的耶穌基督。「我們原是他的工作,在基督耶穌堻y成的,為要叫我們行善,就是 神所預備叫我們行的。(以弗所書210節)。「無論做甚麼,都要從心堸窗A像是給主做的,不是給人做的, 因你們知道從主那堨盛o著基業為賞賜;你們所事奉的乃是主基督。」

(歌羅西書323-24節)。

 

正確的焦點。 我們怎樣才能確定我們所訂的目標是蒙神喜悅的?怎樣才能確定我們所定的計劃是來自正確的動機?「你們要先求他的國和他的義,這些東西都要加給你們了。(馬太福音633節)。

 

謙卑 。在設定目標時,我們很少考慮到謙卑這個美德。但是,很多情況下,這是一種能確保成功持久的品德。「敬畏耶和華心存謙卑,就得富有、尊榮、生命為賞賜。(箴言224節)。

反省與問題討論

 

第一、在一年結束和新的一年開始時,你會不會做新計畫?你做長期計畫和設定目標時,都是透過甚麼樣的流程呢?

第二、如果你明年的計劃已經有進展了,那你會訂甚麼樣的目標呢?

第三、你對使用聖經教導作為制定計劃和設定目標的原則有甚麼看法?你考慮過這麼做嗎?解釋你的答案。

第四、如何把聖經的教導納入計劃和目標設定中?你認為他們可能會如何影響計畫的過程?

 

備註:如果你手上有聖經想要閱讀更多和這個主題相關的經文,請參考下面的經文:

PONDERING AND PREPARING PROPER PLANS

 

By Robert J. Tamasy

 

What are your plans for 2019? Are you wanting to grow your business? Do you desire a promotion, or to find a new, more rewarding job? Maybe you want to make a complete career change? Or perhaps your greatest aspiration is to become an improved version of you?

 

As another calendar year reaches its conclusion, it is time for many of us to again engage in two traditional activities: reviewing the past year, and planning for the new one. Planning has one advantage over reviewing. We cannot change the past, we can only assess it. In planning, however, we can start fresh, determining what we want to do, when, how, where, and even why.

 

One common element of planning is the setting of goals. From a business standpoint, in light of what has transpired over the past year, as well as expectations for the future, we can formulate plans for achieving certain levels of profit, productivity and growth. Plans are also useful, of course, on an individual level. We can establish goals for personal and professional growth and advancement, assessing where we are and where we would like to be at some point in the future.

 

We might wish to build on accomplishments over the last 12 months, or pursue important changes for the attainment of goals that have remained beyond our reach. The adage says, “You’re either getting better or getting worse,” so we strategize about how to get better in future days, months and years.

 

Countless articles and books have been written about effective goal-setting and planning, but they rarely take into account teachings and guidelines presented in the Bible. These can be especially helpful for understanding the “why” of our goals and plans. So to assist as we engage in this annual process, here are just some examples to consider:

 

Wealth. For many people, affluence is a major goal, the ability to attain a desired lifestyle. The Scriptures advise keeping a proper, realistic perspective. “Do not wear yourself out to get rich; have the wisdom to show restraint. Cast but a glance at riches, and they are gone, for they will surely sprout wings and fly off to the sky like an eagle” (Proverbs 23:4-5).

 

Excellence. We should continually strive to do the best work we possibly can, not for our own benefit, but also in recognition of who we represent and ultimately serve. “For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do” (Ephesians 2:10). Whatever you do, do your work heartily, as for the Lord rather than for men, knowing that from the Lord you will receive the reward of the inheritance. It is the Lord Christ whom you serve” (Colossians 3:23-24).

 

Correct focus. How can we be confident that our goals are well-conceived? How can we be certain the plans we formulate are coming from the right motivations? “But seek first His kingdom and His righteousness, and all these things will be added to you as well” (Matthew 6:33).

 

Humility. In setting goals, we rarely consider virtues, such as humility. However, in many cases this is a quality that ensures enduring success. “Humility and the fear of the Lord bring wealth and honor and life” (Proverbs 22:4).

Reflection/Discussion Questions

 

1.    Are planning and goal-setting important activities for you at the end of one year and the beginning of a new one? What kind of process do you use for making long-term plans and establishing goals?

 

 

 

 

2.    If you have progressed in your planning for the next year, what are some of the goals you intend to pursue?

 

 

 

 

3.    What are your thoughts about using principles from the Bible as guidelines for goal-setting and planning? Have you ever considered doing that? Explain your answer.

 

 

 

 

4.    How can biblical teachings be factored into planning and the setting of goals? How do you think they might actually interfere with the planning process?

 

 

 

 

NOTE: If you have a Bible and would like to read more about principles it presents, consider the following passages:

 

Psalm 37:4-5,7; Proverbs 3:5-6, 4:18-19, 16:1-4,9, 19:21, 20:24, 21:30, 27:1
