Some people have said to me that planning is restrictive and makes them feel caged. I know for some of us Benjamin Franklin’s quote that says, 'If you fail to plan, you are planning to fail' is just really a quote or mantra and nothing more but for me, it rings true. I have experienced both sides of it and can say from experience that whenever I fail to plan, I end up with a result that is below excellent. At other times, I am just lucky to get it right. This means that 99.9% of the time things don’t quite turn out as well as I really want them to, simply because I have failed to plan.
