It seems to me very important to do what I planned. Sometimes you should dream about smth unreal. It cheers you up and overall it's great. But if you are planning something, then it must be done.
It is like hygiene. If you are used to brushing your teeth in the evening, then this becomes a habit. And you feel discomfort when you can’t brush your teeth, for example on a trip or after two night shifts in a row. If you always implement plans, and get used to it, then you experience amazing discomfort when something was not implemented according to the plan.
I think this is a fundamentally important habit for the leader - to finish the job to the end, to realize his plans. Those who easily refuse plans, know how to flexibly change them, like a fox with green grapes, such people will not experience this discomfort. Well, great - peace of mind is also important. But this property is for other professions.
“Only 3% of people have life goals and a plan to achieve them.” Where the figure came from - I can not imagine! But I can share my personal experience - having a bucked list is fun and productive. You plan what needs to be done during the week, what needs to be done on vacation, which countries to visit, which books to read and other important to-do lists. And if you systematically cross off done business, then you feel like Batman.
Many say that they have a list of plans, simply not written down, but in their head. But our memory fails us. To transfer an event from the category of “dreams” to the category of plans, it must be recorded and, preferably, set a deadline for execution.
The habit of celebrating things done is a great habit. It’s like the habit of winning.
Have a nice week!
