There is an old saying, “Those who fail to plan, plan to fail.” There is another old saying, “If you want to make God laugh, tell him your plans.” The reason there are so many wise, old, contradictory sayings is so when life goes wrong for you, regardless of what you’ve done, others will have an easier job explaining why. They just pick an adage and slap it on the circumstance. You can do it too. It’s like shooting fish in a barrel! And if you can’t… well, it’s easier said then done.
