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.

The secret of success may not be in setting goals and planning – only… Strategies can make all the difference, giving goals and plans smart focus and leverage.
Happy new year! Isn’t this the best time of the year?! I like beginnings, it’s refreshing, it’s motivating. I makes me feel like everything is possible. If you also get a boost of energy on the first day of the year, take this opportunity to plan the best year of your life!
