In an ideal world, yes they should. Wouldn’t it be wonderful if we lived in a “perfect” world where everything went according to plan. However, life is so unpredictable, conditions and situations do change.
How often have you planned something and it turned out much different from what you originally thought? Different doesn’t necessarily mean worse. In many instances, the adjustments that we make can actually make our original plan better.
Sometimes we need to go in a different direction. Perhaps, we need to take elements from the original plan, and make other plans. Maybe we need to do other activities in conjunction with the original plan. Doing nothing is another option. So many possibilities, is there any wonder why we feel so overwhelmed?
The anecdote for this overwhelm is to take action. This entails making a choice and not being afraid of the unknown. Life is a series of making adjustments. The sooner that you can do this, the better the outcome you’ll have in all aspects of your life.
Take small manageable steps. Making any change, large or small, is a skill that’s learned over a lifetime. Rid yourself of the notion that there’s a perfect path to your objectives.
I’m interested in any thoughts or comments that you have.
