Plan and act anyway

You plan, you prepare, you put those plans into action. Then something completely unexpected comes along and disrupts your planned activities.

It’s possible life will not unfold as you intended. Yet that’s no reason to avoid having intentions, or making plans, or acting on those plans.

Yes, every now and then your plans could very well fall through. But if you have no plans at all then the whole of your life is what will fall through.

Sure, it might seem like a waste to put a great deal of preparation into something that could never happen. However, an even greater waste is to wander aimlessly, afraid that any plans you make might be disrupted.

So go ahead, choose what you intend to do. Then step forward and put your choices into action.

Though life offers no guarantees, there’s a good chance much of what you act upon will get done. And that’s a whole lot better than nothing.

— Ralph Marston
