Life is not a rocket launch!
10..9..8..7..6..5..4..3..2..1….Blast-off…. The rocket ship takes off into space. Precision and accurate planning are vital for its launch into space. Now, does our life need this much planning?
I find people who love to plan to every minute detail , every small event, every small experience in their life. Doesn’t that sap the fun out of our lives? The quirky mannerisms, the failures, the jokes and impromptu behaviours make our moments fun. Rigorous discipline into everything can lead to monotony and boredom.
It is a different thing when we set out on a big endeavour, a project, a business , en enterprise etc. Here it is very important to look at risks, plan, organize etc so that we can arrive at our goal without making the same mistakes over and over again.
The problem with looking too much into the future is to make our plans realistic. Instead of living in the moment and putting all our focus on the job we tend to get caught up in worries about the future.
Can you plan for a bungy jump, a free-fall, death?
Numerous other factors come into play in any event. And that is what we under-estimate. I have a friend who prepared very well for her exams but forgot the timing and came in to write the exam in the afternoon after the exam was over. These events highlight the importance of everything coming together to make an event a success. After doing our part we have to let go, and pray that things work out best.
We can live in the moment, enjoying and not getting into the nitty-gritty of everything. Can we plan for everything? I would like to have your thoughts
