Frequently, this type of avoidance of planning is typical in people that are afraid of failure. The possibility that their plans might not come true freaks them out. I don’t know about you, but I would rather plan and conquer a few things, risking occasional failures due to unexpected events, than a whole life of chaos.
Project management tools can be a great strategic asset to help you organize your life and manage the progress of your goals.
Not planning leads to inaction, not an adventurous, romantic life where incredible and amazing events happen all around you. Sometimes things just happen in our lives. It’s good when it does, planning in fact would not keep us from bumping into opportunities. But the rest of our lives is filled with pure inertia.
A lot of people fail to plan because they fear things will go wrong and they will have wasted their time. Why is the fear of making mistakes, failure and wasting time is so powerful? Is it really so true that we must all give up planning and just live our lifes in autopilot?
