You want to do something.
You have an ideal that you want to realize.
You want to develop your ideas enthusiastically. You want to get started!
But while working out your ideas you can encounter some obstacles.
Developing plans doesn’t happen flawlessly.
You might be working on a a complicated issue.
Or people aren’t collaborating with you.
Or you yourself are being difficult.
Developing plans is a paradoxical process.
In order to have a plan succeed, you should focus, and let go at the same time.
Plans give you overview.
Plans give you direction.
Plans give you guidance.
Plans kick you in the pants.
But you can also lose yourself in a plan when you focus and hold on too much.
You just keep on going on and on and on.
You don’t reflect any more.
You don’t see the bigger picture any more.
You don’t get any more new ideas.
Every now and then you need to let go make your plans for a moment.
Ideals sometimes need time to grow.
Sometimes you need time to grow.
Because sometimes your ideals are further than you are.
