The day I choose to do things in a planned way, everything works against me, and throws my well planned schedule out of course. This has happened to me time and again, and still I keep trying. I sometimes wonder if planning has actually worked for anyone at all, or its just me.
I wanted to wake up early. Finally woke up at 8 am.
I wanted to do some exercise today. It was too hot outside.
I wanted to reach office early today. Couldn’t leave early because a meeting was scheduled right before I was supposed to leave home.
Strange as it may seem, I am much less worried or tensed when my days are unplanned. No expectations, to targets to run for, and a happy and calm day. But then, being a husband and a dad, I am supposed to at least act as if I have planned everything perfectly. And it better be a good plan.
Good plan is the one which has unlimited number of backup plans in case any one of those fail.
When my wife asks, “Have you made your plans?” I answer, “Of course. Don’t you know me? I don’t keep anything for the last minute.”
And think to myself, I just told the biggest baddest lie of today and look at my wife. She smiles and probably is thinking the same. 😀
