Planning Incontinence

We like the idea of planning before executing. It's just that we always deviate from our plan, especially in a complex project.

how life can upend our strategy

how chances can stifle the outcome

how our own motivation can alter our decisions.

Plan just enough to start, and then replan as you execute. Allow buffer for the unknown unknowns.
