Planning first then doing – don’t get in trouble when you don’t have a plan
In fundraising, planning is huge – “fail to plan, plan to fail” – what happens when you get stuck in the mud – you have to have some other means to get you out.
Make sure to update your cash flow and “don’t just see what happens”
Know the FDT and how to use it – cash flow, ppl
FMP for year and follow it – know who is doing what (AD? Primary caller?, etc)
Pray about the plan, be wiling for the Lord to change the plan
Change behavior based on the Cash Flow and FMP and be prepared to change the plan if needed to avoid deficits
Don’t make bad decisions because you can’t see around the bend. Change your behavior now if you foresee something
Planning is essential!
