It was narrated that most people move by their emotions and not by their brains, and when they face challenges, they adapt their plans, but the adjustment will only bring another problem, so there is no alternative to pre-planning the inevitable end.
Individuals with high ambitions often think about what they want to achieve or, rather, what they want to accomplish through action. They draw goals and then think about how they’re being achieved. Did they make a plane to the end of the road before setting the starting point? Are they going to position the cart in front of the horse?
Knowledgeable people focus on the need for a person to work on leading his fortune carefully and seeking to appreciate the events of his future through scientific thinking of the long-term future, it is planning path towards achieving the “end”.
That means taking into account all the consequences and obstacles that may hinder the path, also possibilities of bad luck that may turn the results of painstaking effort upside down and give glory to others. By Planning for the end, you can ban Circumstances to cause confusion. That happens when the person knows when to stop. So what is the benefit of having big dreams if the others will reap its rewards and glories? Therefore, one should not lose one’s mind running behind a mysterious dream open to all directions, but always plan for the end that he wants to achieve.
In 1863, the shrewd Prime Minister of Prussia, Otto van Bismarck, reviewed the situation of European powers at that time and noticed that the main executing powers were England, France and Austria. He observed that Prussia was one of many countries allied within the framework of German federalism while Austria was the dominant member of federalism .It was always keen to ensure that the rest of the German states are weak, divided, and submissive. In the contrary Bismarck believed that Prussia should have a far greater destiny than just an “obedient boy” for Austria, so let’s see how did Bismarck play his game?
His first step was to ignite the war with Denmark to restore the Schleswig-Holstein regions. He knew that these Prussian independence moves would raise the concerns of England and France , therefore he involved Austria in the war . Bismarck claimed that he was restoring Schleswig-Holstein to the common interest of Austria and Russia. Within a few months the war was settled Bismarck immediately demanded that the two recovered regions become part of Prussia. Austrians were angry but were forced to bargain, so they agreed to give the Prussians a Selizwig region .
After one year they sold it to the Holstein Region, and the world saw Austria as a force that began to weaken and that Prussia began to grow stronger and dominate.
Bismarck’s next step was the most daring one. In 1866, the King of Prussia convinced William to withdraw from the German Federation, and with this move he went to war against Austria. King William’s wife, his son, his successor, and the princes of other German kingdoms were all against this war.

Bismarck did not retreat and was able to resolve the decision towards his plan .he went to war against Austria and the superior Prussian army was able to defeat the Austrians in a brutal war that lasted for seven weeks. After that the king and Prussian generals wanted to crawl to take over Vienna, the Austrian capital, but Bismarck stopped them.
He put himself in the ranks of the peace camp and was the result of this position is that he was able to conclude a treaty with Austria.
As a result Prussia and other German countries were granted full independence from Austria. Bismarck was able to place Prussia at the center of the dominant power in Germany and the leader of the new North German Confederation.
The British and the French became fearful that Bismarck was planning to take control of Uroa .As once he began his conquests there was no way to know when he would stop, and indeed after three years Bismarck had initiated a war with France. At first he pretended that he allowed France to annex Belgium to it but at the last minute he changed his mind .That angered French Emperor Napoleon III. Bismarck’s pitting King William against France, did not deplore the outbreak of the war in 1870. Forces of the new Confederate states joined the war against France. Prussian war machine and its allies managed to destroy the French army. Bismarck was opposing the annexation of any French territory, but the generals convinced him that the Alsace-Lorraine regions must become part of federalism.
The next move of the Prussian legendary beast led by the “Iron Advisor” was apprehensive for the whole of Europe. In fact, within a year of Bismarck’s creation of the German Empire, King William crowned the Emperor of Germany and proclaimed himself the Duke. A curious thing had happened; Bismarck had ceased to provoke war.
Although European countries raced and fought Among them, for the possession of colonies on the five continents, Bismarck did not want more land for Germany but more stability, and spent the rest of his life trying to maintain peace in Europe and prevent more wars, and all people thought that Bismarck had changed and weakened his resolve due to old age. Yet they did not understand his reality, as it was the end of his original plan from the beginning.
There is a simple explanation why most administrative leaders do not know when they have to stop making progress in their work, which is they have not come up with a clear idea of their goal. If another gains are made, their hunger for more of them increases. only a few leaders can master the ability of stopping and setting the target clearly and adhering to it.
The leader who goes too far in his reactions causes responses that eventually contribute to his defeat. The only solution is long-term preparation and imagining the future with total detail, in accordance with the purpose of the goal .Also seeing the end of everything and achieving the target set from the beginning of the plan.
Leaders, who think more about the future, explicitly intend to accomplish specific goals and work calmly and efficiently will execute their plans. Many people are prisoners of the present moment, which stopping them from preparing a forward-looking vision for the future.
People do not have the ability to disregard thoughts and pleasures, so people can not have the strength that allows them to resolve natural disasters. Many people do not have empathy that needs to cope with events as they happen, and they see them step out in front of them and envision situations that are not beyond their immediate control.
Some administrative leaders imagine that they are planning and thinking about the future, and the fact of the matter is that they are giving up to their desires and what they want from the future. They strongly want to reach the happy end.
In 1848, the conflict escalated in the French elections between Louis Thiers, the leader of the political party, and the far-right general, Louis Cagnac, who was more fortunate.
Thiers believed that Louis Bonaparte, a tiny member of parliament from the first Bonaparte dynasty, could easily be defeated. In the contrary Louis Bonaparte won the war and became an ambitious monarch. He dissolved the parliament and proclaimed himself emperor .Louis governed France for 18 years, while Thiers and his party lived in a state of terror and remorse.
Good planning should focus on the fact that planning is all about the end. It’s the one who decides who to choose the glory, the power, the money and the reward. Therefore, the intended end of the administrative leader must be simple and clear, otherwise the guilt would be like the remorse of Thiers and his party for the rest of his life as he sees others like “Louis “reaping the fruit of his efforts.
