People always ask me: What’s your plan? What do you see yourself in three, five or even ten years time? What’s your short/long term goal? What do you want to achieve before you reach 30, 40 and/or 50?
Big questions! …but have I told you I have a syndrome called “plan phobia syndrome”?
No? Well, as the name explains, I will have serious terror/fright when I get questions relating to the word “plan” and/or anything similar to it. And I will go to great lengths to avoid it… Don’t even ask me what I’ll do tomorrow or the next day after, because I don’t have a plan! Experts on such topic would probably be horrified to hear this, but personally I don’t think that’s too much of a problem. Without the restriction of a plan, I find myself with more freedom to manoeuvre, I can also afford to take up some opportunity that I may not have considered.
So, if you are panicking because you haven’t got a big master plan in line for 2012, you are not alone, we’re in the same boat!
I wanted a perfect ending. Now I’ve learned, the hard way, that some poems don’t rhyme, and some stories don’t have clear beginning, middle, and end. Life is about not knowing, having to change, taking the moment and making the best of it without knowing what’s going to happen next. – Gilda Radner, actor
