The simple things in life we plan ahead; for example going to the grocery store. We plan the meals we are going to make and make a shopping list. When we get in the car we have a plan of the route we are going to take, if we need to make a detour to get gas or buy something from another store we decide ahead of time the order in which we a going to do things. We cannot imagine driving around aimlessly until we just happen upon a grocery store.
And yet so often when it comes to the big things in our lives, careers, relationships, our whole future we have no plan; we drive aimlessly around. I am often guilty of this which is why I am writing this piece, but I tell myself I am at least aware of it. Being aware of a problem is half way to fixing it.
