Things to Think About - In preparing for battle I have always found that plans are useless, but planning is indispensable

Things to Think About
By Pepper de Callier

“In preparing for battle I have always found that plans are useless, but planning is indispensable.”  Dwight D. Eisenhower

This quote is a great reminder of the value of discipline.  Yes, the plan that you made might fall apart in the heat of battle, but the time and effort you devoted to creating it taught you so much about the elements of it, that your knowledge and experience can now trigger very valuable real-time insights.

Think about General Eisenhower’s quote the next time you find yourself preparing a budget or some other equally mind-numbing exercise and see if it doesn’t give you an added incentive to engage more deeply in your task.

Good luck on your journey!
