1. Young people today may confront with multiple choices and complicated situations about their life, such as colleges, employment and marriage. The ability of planning and organizing in advance will guide them to make wise choices in significant turning points in their life, thus they will go smoothly in future.
2. Youth is the best time of a person’s life. If they master the ability to plan and organize, they will save much of their best time to fulfill the wish of making a difference and achieving accomplishment in their life, which is likely spent on mistakes and trials for suitable directions if without any plan and organization.
1. Modern life is complex since the unexpected changes may happen all the time. The ability to plan and organize could not guarantee the situations we may face become easier and simpler.
2. As the young people in a modern society, the most important quality for them is to embrace the unknown world even if they are frustrated by reality many times. To plan and organize like a sophisticated adult will not excite the young life and add joy to life experiences. Step-by-step life may seem to be less risky but lacks creativity and vitality.
Increasingly sophisticated technology, explosive information and intricate international relationships all work together to complicate the modern life, which makes our modern people somewhat overwhelmed. Individuals whoever want to have a better control of one’s life must equip themselves with some essential skills or abilities. Planning and organizing, which embodies the skill of anticipating, influencing, and controlling, in my view, is becoming gradually important in coping with today’s complication especially for the young who are always the most passionate but also with less self-control. First of all, planning helps keep one on course in achieving goals and crystallize objectives. Young people always possess some grand dreams which may take years to accomplish. Planning ahead, on the one hand, could effectively put one on the right track thus prevent energy from being scattered or wasted. A survey conducted by experts from Oxford University shows that over 90% of elites and enterprisers had precise objects and made plans for decades later at very young age. Like Bill Gates, one of the most prominent persons I have ever seen, discontinued their studies since he was definite aware of what he should do in order to become the leader of IT field. On the other hand, plans, which are organized step by step, could turn the ultimate goals into several achievable ones. With achievable objective achieved one by one, the ultimate goal will finally be attained. Besides, planning and organizing help to promise one’s best performance in most occasions. Panning means trying to anticipate all the possibilities and arrange things in a scientific order. It clearly tells people what to do currently and what should do the next, which prevents disorder or chaos. Thus, people may feel assured and will be with less stress. For example, a student who sticks to a study plan is less likely to be nervous thus will be more likely to have better performance than those who crams for tests. Today youngsters are exposed with fierce competitions but also abundant opportunities. Good performance is key to hold these opportunities in hand. It is undeniable that our society changes at such a quick pace that we cannot plan everything in previous. But this by no means implies that the ability is not important. Without a plan, complex things will only get more complicated. Abraham Lincoln reportedly once said, “If I had 60 minutes to cut down a tree, I would spend 40 minutes sharpening the ax and 20 minutes cutting it down.” Planning is just like “sharpening the ax”, which will no doubt facilitate a task easy done. All in all, though the ability of planning and organizing may not be omnipotent for people especially the young to cope with new situations in today’s complex society, it does facilitate to fulfill one’s life goals and help to improve one’s performance when opportunities come.
The contemporary society is made more complicated and complex by the information technology. While many adolescents think highly of a casual lifestyle without well set schedules, since it’s more convenient and comfortable, I personally believe that it is indispensable for the young generation to learn to adapt to the fast-changing world by developing the competence of planning and organizing. First and foremost, strong arrangement capability boosts academic results of the youthful. The contemporary society requires these young students to learn multiple disciplines simultaneously, so they have to take full advantage of their limited time which needs to be well distributed to each subject according to difficulty and score proportion. Otherwise, they may waste the majority of time lost in fear and anxiety and find it hard to concentrate in the library for a long period, the negative influences of which can be weariness, dropouts, and then limited career prospects. Secondly, mapping out ahead of time helps the immature to manage their personal finance and avert excessive consumption. Taking my personal shopping experience as an example. Once I went to a shopping mall in the city center without making a list of commodities because I thought I could remembered them when I was in the stores. Unfortunately, I was dazzled by a wide range of merchandises and I spent a total of three hours wandering in the streets only to find myself forgetting the targeted products while purchasing many unnecessary goods. If I paid efforts to plan forehead, it could take me only an hour to buy all the required items home without being attempted to pay for discount articles. In a conclusion, the abilities to plan and organize serve as a vital catalyst for juveniles’ outstanding academic performance and capital management which are requisites for the survival in the present world.
