The contradiction of planning
A plan turns your beliefs into action, which is the key to make change. But a plan also risks limiting your options. Too rigorous planning with too long time perspective actually hinders you from seeing the opportunities around you. Plan no longer than two steps ahead. Two steps ahead to make sure your next move maximize the opportunities for the step after. Make sure your plan has room for flexibility, iteration and randomness.
