Possibilities vs plans

Posted by Jenni

I had a plan (or many plans). But then I realised, that they weren’t really plans because I wasn’t really doing anything to make them happen. So, I decided to change things.

In the last six months, I’ve been trying to teach myself not to have a plan – just possibilities. This is Becky’s idea, and I’m sure she’ll say something about it when she makes her first post. But it’s not something that comes naturally for me – I like things to be organised.

But I’m learning that if you blindly follow one plan, that can also closes off other possibilities for you. You need options and targets and ideas so you don’t wander aimlessly not achieving anything. But you can achieve more if you simply put yourself in a position where you can make the most of any opportunities that present themselves.

I’m going to stop there for now – just a philosophical introduction to explain the name. But it does give me a few ideas for future blog – my list, discarded plans, advantures and several others. But then, they’re really just possibilities. Who knows what will actually happen?
