In Others’ Words: Plans
“Plans are only good intentions unless they immediately degenerate into hard work.” ~Peter Drucker (1909-2005), writer
I start Monday with lots of plans for the week. Some of them end up being nothing more than good intentions by the time Friday rolls around.
And, yeah, that’s frustrating.
Sometimes legitimate interruptions derail my plans.
And sometimes I derail my plans. I just get . . . distracted. By things that seem worthwhile at the time. Like all that social media stuff I’m supposed to be doing. Or by the other stuff it’s easier to do than buckling down and writing that rough draft that’s been postponed all summer long because of a wildfire. And a computer crash. And a wedding. And, well, life.
Sometimes I need to do what needs to be done so that plans become accomplishments. And the reality is that takes work. Not excuses. Work.
So, it’s Monday. I’ve got work today — specifically, I’ve got two chapters to finish writing. What have you got planned?
In Your Words: Got any plans for today? For the week? I’d love to hear about them.
