I’m not a big planner.

Why?

Because life happens.

Because things change.

Because life rarely goes according to plan.

We spend so much time making grand plans.

We spend so much time thinking weeks, months, and years into the future.

We spend so much time guessing and projecting.

We spend so much time trying to predict the future.

Few things go the way we originally plan.

Life doesn’t care about our plans.

Life has a way of throwing wrenches into our plans.

It’s important to think about the future.

It’s important to brainstorm ideas and get thoughts together.

Planning is more of a rough draft than a finished document.

I wouldn’t spend too much time making sure it’s all pretty.

I wouldn’t get too attached to it.

I’d write in pencil not in pen.

I’d be ready to update it and change it often.

Because change is inevitable.

So look at the big picture.

Get the big things and big points right.

Then make decisions real time.

I’m not going to waste my precious time creating a picture-perfect document with every little detail laid out that is just going to be thrown in the garbage.

I’m not anti planning.

I am anti wasting my precious time.

I am anti wasting my time on little things that don’t matter and that will change.

I am anti letting a document control my life.
