“Everyone has a plan until they get punched in the face.” ~ Mike Tyson.
Plans are great. Planning is essential. We all need a clear plan and set goals.
We also need to be prepared; because not everything goes to plan.
Not everything works out the way we had in mind.
Plans must be dynamic, flexible, living documents.
Plans set us in the right direction, but we need to review, correct and make new choices.
Review plans regularly, check we are still on track, adjust course and go again.
Make assessments and new decisions.
Is this still working?
What can we do better?
How have circumstances changed since we made this choice?
Is there an alternative?
What can I do today?
Review constantly, reconsider, look for alternatives. Anticipate challenges. Seek opportunities.
Have a plan and review it regularly!
