Our main business is not to see
what lies dimly at a distance
but to do what lies
clearly at hand
I was talking with an executive
who is involved in
yet more rounds of planning sessions
at his manufacturing company
He sighed and said
"we plan and we plan
but we never do".
Planning is good
But eventually, you have to get out on the field
and run some playsI have a friend who actually calls his planning guide his "playbook"
Let me put it this way:
I can plan the menu for the next week
but if I do not get in to the kitchen today
no one eats tonight
It seems we can be so busy
trying to see the light at the end of the tunnel
That we forget to
use the light
To do the things that need to be done
And doing the things
that need to be done today
is a plan!
and that's poetiquejustis
Good planning and hard work lead to prosperity,
but hasty shortcuts lead to poverty.
