Planning As A Practice Of Presence

A plan is a commitment to specific sequences of actions based on specific sets of assumptions. The key word here is assumptions. Reality sometimes aligns with our assumptions but certainly makes no promises, given the fact that change is life's constant. The wise plan accordingly.

Perhaps the most realistic sense of planning is that it is a lens that reveals specific opportunities in the present. In this rather agile view, planning can be a practice of presence rather than prediction or procrastination.
