“In preparing for battle, I have found that planning is essential, but plans are useless.” – Dwight D. Eisenhower
The true magic of Ike’s words are that they describe who we become by planning.
I consider planning a way of honoring our potential and effort.
Sometimes, it is best to be spontaneous, to let things go as they will.
But, for most things, and anything of import, we are best-served by imaging what we want and creating a feasible scenario for its creation.
Otherwise we are mere creatures of circumstance – be more than mere.
