Plans are just that, an idea of the actions that could happen. Business plans, financial plans, life plans, and student plans. They are all the same. An act that we think or would like to happen. Instead of focusing on planning, put your attention towards acting or executing towards your goals. Then the plan will work.
Like, for instance, this morning. I had planned out an entire day of things to do, but didn’t. Plans are just that. You still have to execute to put the plan into action.
