Planning and planners — how to become a ‘master planner’


•  ‘Preach My Gospel’ teaches us that we should ‘apply the same principles and guidelines in a daily planning session that you would follow in a weekly planning
.   session but in a simpler way’.
•  As you follow theses guidelines, ask yourself these five simple questions for each of the 13 guidelines to ensure you have planned every detail:  1) Who are we
 planning for   2) What is the plan?  3) Why are we planning [desired outcome]   4) Where do they live?   5) When does the Lord want us to see them?
•  Remember Elder Kevin Pearson’s words:  “Your planner is evidence of your preparation” and he promised that “if we become MASTER PLANNERS the
 baptisms will double.”
•   How to become a Master Planner:
.      1) Pray for inspiration.
.      2) Set goals and make plans for investigators to be baptized.
     3) Set goals and make plans for investigators with a baptismal date.
