There is the old saying that “a failure to plan is a plan to fail. This is emphasized twice by Jesus in the Parables of "Building a tower" and "Waging a War" in Luke 14:28–33.
The Steps are:
- sit down - spend the effort
- count the cost
a. for the total project
b. make sure it is enough to complete and to overcome the obstacles- Luke 14:28, 31
- If not, Come out with alternatives to complete the project - Luke 14:32
- Commit all your resources in fulfilling your plan (eg Calling by God) - Luke 14:33
Half-hearted commitment is not able to bring success.
