Plans are hard and dreary work

A great post today (as usual) from Seth Godin.

Most of us want (and love) to be picked.

Picked to speak at a conference.

Retweeted on Twitter.

You name it.

But being picked is not a plan.  (Unless, of course, your plan is to sit around and wait to be picked).

Here’s how Seth defines a plan:

A plan involves steps that are largely under your influence and control. A plan involves the hard and dreary and difficult work of a thousand brave steps, of doing things that might not work, of connecting and caring and bringing generosity when we don’t think we have any more to bring.

Yuck.

Plans take time.

Plans take work.

Sometimes plans take you to dreary and difficult places.

Plans demand bravery.

And generosity.

So… what’s your PLAN?
