Plans are nothing… Planning is everything.– Dwight D. Eisenhower
Plans might work or not, the specific plans may not always unfold as intended. External factors, unexpected events, or changing circumstances can render initial plans obsolete or impractical.. While specific plans may need adjustment, the process of planning is valuable because it helps you become more adaptable for different eventualities. Planning involves thinking through potential scenarios, considering alternatives, and preparing for various outcomes.
There are usually a lot of thought, analysis, and preparation that go into the planning process, unlike the rigid plans themselves.
The process of planning, allows you to grow, and to be prepared for the unexpected.
