Have you made a list of all the things you’d like to achieve this year? Or are you just going with the flow and letting life happen to you?
I’m doing a bit of both. I’ve realized that it’s important to make plans. But it’s also important to allow life to lead us as we act on those plans.
In the last couple of years JosÃ© and I have made plans for our individual and corporate lives, only to find them being upset by some unplanned event – an illness, an accident, contractors not meeting deadlines, etc. This subconsciously makes me not want to plan anything in detail.
However, I realize that’s it’s not good to be motivated by a fear of the unknown – and consequently a fear of failure. I need to make plans, but I also need to allow life to lead me as I act on those plans.
So I’m making plans for the year. I’m releasing my fears about what I can achieve. I’m going to enjoy myself acting on my plans….
