Plan may be a noun. But to us, it’s always a verb. It’s action and change, response and recalculation.
“If you don’t know where you are going, you’ll end up someplace else.” – Yogi Berra
“It does not do to leave a live dragon out of your calculations, if you live near one.” – J.R.R. Tolkien. [meaning — identify risks!]
“Plans are worthless, but planning is everything.” –Eisenhower (said he “heard in the Army”)
“Mann Tracht, Un Gott Lacht” (“Man plans and God laughs”) –old Yiddish adage
“Everyone has a plan ’till they get punched in the mouth.” –Mike Tyson
“A man, a plan, a canal — Panama!” (okay, maybe I’m going a little too far here…)
With all that in mind, we plan. We update, adjust, revisit, contemplate risks. It’s never finished. It’s always a work in progress. And that’s okay.
