Good advice, but Edmondson discusses those steps, with the exception of "repent" largely in secular terms - but they have deep spiritual meaning - and he leaves one out that should be there. I want to focus on what he left out.
All failure can be traced ultimately to one source - failure to submit to God's will. Submit is the key word there. It requires submission to hear God's will. It requires submission to consent to God's will. It requires submission to execute God's will.
I think after repentance, but before planning, committing and growing, we must submit - then submit again.
