– ”To fail to plan is to plan to fail”. Some one said it. i forgot who. But If you fail to plan, you might do it because you do not want to succeed. You might want to fail. Subconsciously, that is. Self-Sabotage. Out of fear. For it is hard to succeed as well as fail.
By lacking a plan so are you planning for nothing to happen. You will remain on the site. Plans that extend too far into the future also becomes worthless. You will remain on the site. Long-term plans are quickly becoming worthless, all by themselves, for there are too many external events that will ruin your plan.
Even if you have a very clear picture of where you want to go. What your change will lead to. Keep your focus on your next steps. Imagine five steps forward. Plan five steps ahead. But do so focusing on where you put your foot down. Here and now. Staring blindly at the target in the horizon is the best way if you want to trip over the obstacles in your way.
