I’m definitely a planner–for me, lists are things of beauty–but plans only work if they’re flexible.
They’re designed to help you achieve a goal. If you’ve got a big enough goal, you won’t know exactly how to make it happen. By default then, your plan is a best guess. It’s a starting point. Once you begin to put the plan into action, you’ll get feedback on your efforts and can then adjust accordingly.
Intellectually, all this makes sense right? There’s nothing earth-shatteringly new here.
Except, most people don’t plan. They really don’t. Do you?
