Oftentimes we make plans for our lives, whether they be long-term or short-term plans, we usually have an idea in mind about how we would like things to go. We even envision certain people in those plans. But things don’t always work out as planned. We have to move beyond the plan and think about the goal. The goal is the result of the plan – the thing we hope to achieve.
We have no control over the plan because unforeseen things happen, but that doesn’t mean we won’t accomplish what we set out to do. We never plan for delays, detours, nor destruction; however, these things interrupt our plans quite often, but we have to keep going until we reach the goal. If you are late for dinner plans because of an accident that occurred while you were driving to the restaurant, you won’t cancel the reservation, you’ll find an alternate route that will get you there. The plan changed but the goal didn’t. Don’t turn around now because things are not going as planned. Keep going and reach the goal!
