responsible for planning. Planning weighs consequences of making easy and hard
choices in advance. Procrastination and the fear of failure often present
alternatives to producing decisions as simple routes to a good. Once in a while
we might hit the lottery. Sometimes we may develop cancer. These unplanned
events are aberrances. We must make clear choices about where we think
we’re heading. Otherwise yesterday, today and tomorrow—life—is reduced to a series
of unrelated incidents.
I believe we have
some influence on destiny. Whether or not our goals are achieved is far less
important than the fact we tried and did our best. Many things matter in the
end but it is planning which will enable us to be satisfied.
