Sure, it’s great to have a goal and a plan, and to take appropriate action steps towards it. In fact, I don’t know a better way to do it. It provides me with a sense of ease and calm to know the direction I’m headed in, why I’m headed that way, and how I’ll get there.
But life is full of unexpected occurrences.
So, I’ve learned to make my plans and still expect the unexpected. Don’t get me wrong; I don’t plan for the unexpected or have a Plan B like lots of people I know. Instead, I move ahead with my plans towards my goal knowing that hiccups, snags and whoopses will inevitably pop up.
I’ve learned that flexibility is my friend, and my ability to change direction, make adjustments and keep moving serves me well.
The next time you experience a ‘whoops’ or run into a snag, simply breathe into it, modify your plans, and get back on the move. Just like a small dose of sugar for your hiccups, the breathing and adjustments will set you on your way again.
Now, that’s Powerful!
