In times of uncertainty a plan can give you all the safety you need.
But many times it'll just make you feel good.
It'll make you feel like you're beating uncertainty.
And the better, the more detailed and the more time you spend working on that plan, the more it'll feel like you're in control, know what you're doing and know what's going to happen.
That's why a plan can be a dead end.
Because there's no perfect plan.
No matter how much time you spend working on it.
There's no way to predict the future.
There's just going out there, testing your assumptions, seeing what happens and then adapting to reality.
If your plan only works when everything goes according to plan, then you probably don't even have a plan..
