Who said failure to plan is planning to fail?
In the business world, planning is to avoid the consequences of failure. Planning helps to have a focus, and solutions to possible issues that may arise. The consequences …could be not having realistic goals, and not having the right people to help accomplish the goals.

The Schlieffen plan was the German plan of attack designed to defeat France quickly and then turn on Russia. It was intended to avoid a war on two fronts. However, the plan wa…s based on a number of assumptions, and these turned out to be flawed. It was thought that Russia would take at least six weeks to mobilize. In reality Russia mobilized in just ten days.The German General Staff thought that Belgium would not resist any Germany attack. When Germany invaded on 2nd August 1914, they were held up by the Belgium army, backed up by the BEF (British Expeditionary Force).It was also estimated that France could easily be defeated in six weeks. Backed by the British, the French managed to halt the German advance.The Germans thought that Britain would not fight and that its army was just a huge joke. With the quick Russian mobilization, Germany was forced to withdraw troops from France defend her eastern border. Thus, the Schlieffen Plan failed because it was based on a number of monumemtally arrogant assumptions that were flawed. For years the German General Staff had been badly out of touch with reality.
I do believe that was Dwight D. Eisenhower.
What this means is if you don't plan for something i.e. 'fail to plan' then you can expect things to go wrong i.e. 'plan to fail'. Quite self explanatory.
Harvey Mackay said, "Failures don't plan to fail; they fail to plan."
Failure to plan is planning to fail discus this statement in relation to development planningshowing merits and obstacles to the planning process?
Failure to Plan is planning to fail. This Statement is true , however there are other factors that may lead to failing in anything one does. Issa a student at Mountains of th…e moon university - Uganda has the following views; Planning guides an individual on what to do and when to do it. In reference to the teaching profession, planning is very important in the class room situation teachers need to prepare lesson plans and schemes of work. This is important if the learners are to understand the content taught Teachers have failed to teacher not because they fail to plan but because of thing like ; The discipline of the learners, The school environment; The family background of the learners, Limited resources to use during teaching, Poor curriculum designs. When you plan your work it is organised and properly done. In the Education context it is important to plan without planning the aims of education may not be achieved. Planning is very important as far as teaching is concerned As a teacher I have the following views about planning and failing; When you fail you did not plan to fail because no body wishes to fail. But when you fail to plan especially at the beginning you are automatically planning to fail. Consider a situation where you are going to teacher and it is just 5 minutes for you to start your lesson with your class and you are still 4km away from the school, you have not made lesson plan and scheme of work of the lesson and even your learners have not swept the class. This is automatic that you will fail to teach the period in the time it was supposed to be taught This clearly show that when one fails to plan he will fail his mission at the end. As teachers we need planning since without which we are liable to fail our learners The headteacher should plan for all the activities in the school at the beginning of the term. These may include the public days the time of exams the time of visits and others. Planning creates confidence in the teacher and it is this that stimulates the learners to learning. When you plan, you are aware of what to do next, you are organised and you know what you are doing. In other words one who plans do not panic in any way. Economically planning is very important. To the school there are many activities which need to be planned This means that as teachers we need to know much about planning. Activities like improving the school standard , student's behavior and student's performance needs planning and in many schools where planning is poor, such activities fail- meaning that failing to plan automatically leads to fail. Let us look at our Country Uganda, it is a country where people are below poverty line and they survive but do not leave, and it is through planning that few are leaving, the incomes are low but the expenditures are many. To survive planning is very important. I come back to our fellow teachers who are in the field working. Most of these have been characterised by the community to be poor, low income earners, doing a bad profession, etc. But I personally look at this as a result of poor planning. The teaching profession is the best of all other professions because, Teachers are given holy days but still get their earnings though small compared to other professions that do not get such holy days. Being a teacher one has freedom of doing other activities apart from teaching so long as they will not negatively affect his or her teaching. Now the question is, What has caused teachers be called poor and teaching profession be called bad? The best and obvious answer is that people involved in the teaching profession have failed to plan for the time they have and the money they get however little it is. There teachers should note that as they teacher they should plan for their time and other resources. As student teacher therefore we should prepare to meet challenges in the field we are in and we should prepare enough to overcome them through early planning I can not confine the reasons to why people fail in doing certain activities to failure to plan. In reference to the teaching profession there are so many reasons why students fail to pass tests and examinations, why teachers fail to teach and why schools fail to improve their general performance. These include; Limited resources in the schools Background of the learners The attitudes of the learners towards education The current curriculum Lack of parental participation in the school management.
I believe the quote is actually "If you fail to prepare then you are preparing to fail" and it would be Benjamin Franklin.
Plans failure in Nigeria is due to lack of perfect monitoring system in the country. This gives the contractors the chance to divert the fund made available to them for their …own selfish purposes. Another big factor is a corrupt government. most of the contractors receive half the money mapped out for the contract. this makes them to leave the contract half way. Again, the people are reluctant to the affairs in the government. If a government promises something, and ddn't get it done, would't the people ask why its not done? but most of the cases, the people are not bothered with that. Another stunning factor is corrupt chief, most of the leaders of towns in nigeria has a direct cut from which some corrupt leaders will give them. though this is reducing as the EFCC will cramp down any Economic crime which gets to its table.
True. You can succeed without a plan, but with a prepared mind.

It is an old proverb, it is in many languages and cultures. There is not real record of the original speaker. And because it exists in many cultures, we don't even know …the true country or origin. Many writers have been quoted as being the source of this or similar quotes, but in truth it predates all of them.
Frequently because they are not robustly reviewed. When a development plan is created many expect its content to be a straight line to success - No so. A Development plan is s…et out as a map to get from A to B. When such a plan is created all parties should have input and understand what their task is to help all teams get from the concept of the plan to the end of the plan. Each section of the plan (task) will have an owner and a target date to achieve. When the plan goes live one person should be responsible for collating where everyone involved is up to in its progress. If one section hits a stumbling point which may be unforeseen then representatives from each time (task force) will meet to discuss what has occurred and how this can be overcome, moved or steered around without inflicting burden on other s as far as it is possible. These are review meetings which MUST occur regularly. With regular meetings taking place and open, honest frank discussions occurring many plans will and do succeed. The greatest cause of failure is the management of the plan and those with the authority to do so not taking responsibility for driving it forward
it means if u dont plan out then you are planning to fail..
