Thinking about Planning

I typically keep a book open on my nightstand and read before retiring at night or upon awaking in the morning. My current book is The Way of Transition by William Bridges, PhD. This is the second of Bill Bridges' books that I've read, and I find them enlightening and thought provoking. This morning, I share this quote with you:

"... planning is such a misleading concept. It takes your eyes off where you are and how your life is now, which is the essential data of existence. You fail to arrive where you planned, not because you couldn't visualize the place but because you didn't see that the path you were on was the place--if only you could see it at the right angle to reveal its iridescence."

This speaks volumes to me. I hope it will to you, too.
