planning

how much do you plan?

personally, i hate planning. attempting to anticipate the events of the future seems a bit futile to me, even bordering on hubris, and we all know what happened to icarus. ive heard it said that there’s no use in building the biggest boat when you can’t raise the tide, and that’s so true, it hurts.

but how about my decision making? don’t all my decisions point in a certain direction that i want to take my life in? for example, the choices i make at work affect my positive or negative standing at work, which determine which city i live in. and if i continue to live in philadelphia, there’s a very good chance that i’m committing to a grisly death by stray bullet fire or stab wounds. wait, now i’m confused about the chain of events that has led to me being killed to death.

no matter, because what i’ve learned remains the same. the harder you try to grip the control joystick of life, the more you realize that nearly everything is out of your control. when you, my faithful readers, learn this, you will look down and realize that what you thought was the control joystick of life is actually a slimy, wet, trout. and the harder you grip it, the more it will squirm out of your hands.

so man the rudders, but have faith in the current.
