Today’s Principle to Follow:
Principle #22: All the Thoughts and Planning in the World are of Limited Use.
There are too many variables for anyone to truly know the outcome of almost any event. Something that seems like it should fail often succeeds. And something that seems like it should work often does not. Planning and thinking ahead are good to do. They help us be prepared. Sometimes, however, people find comfort in thinking more and more, and analyzing possibilities more and more, and they get caught in a rut. Rather than progressing and stepping out into the real world and risk making mistakes, they stay in their comfort zone, and delay action.
We need to catch ourselves if we enter such a rut. We need to see it for what it is and push ourselves to try something, and to accept whatever outcome happens. Of course, if the stakes are super high and it is a matter of life and death, it is probably wise to have a complete plan from beginning to end to make sure no unforeseen problems arise. In other cases, remember that there is always a lot to learn from trying something and making a mistake, and then making corrections as we go.
