It’s easy not to plan.

We often put off planning our day, planning our week, and planning how we’re going to spend our money because we don’t think we can make a good plan. Instead, we muddle along with no plan, thinking “I’ll make a good plan soon.”

This is a really bad place to be, because we can spend weeks, months, and even years thinking “I’ll make a good plan soon.” In the meantime, time passes and life accumulates.

Don’t let this happen to you. Instead, just make a bad plan.

A bad plan can be fixed on the fly, and just having a plan improves our odds of success. And, of course, the only way to get good at planning is to be bad at it for a while.

A bad plan can be a good thing, and it always beats no plan.
