It is human nature to plan things and to expect, rather prefer things to work out as planned. But that doesn’t really always happen does it ?🤔
I have seen people getting disappointed and at times really angry just because something didn’t work out as planned. Is it actually worth losing our peace of mind ? In fact does the feeling of anger or despair help us ? No right ?
So what to do ? Should we stop making plans for ourselves ?
Of course not, but I believe that one should always have a plan B ready , so that in case something goes wrong, we can accept things and start executing our plan B.
One such incident happened with me today. I had to attend meeting that got scheduled on a very short notice, so I quickly got ready and was rushing for the same . I was right on the clock, however 10 minutes prior to my meeting I got a text asking me to reschedule. 🙄😒
Now, I was really excited about this appointment and had all my homework done for getting the deal. But didn’t work out, I don’t even know when this meeting will happen. I was feeling so disappointed and a little irate too, but then I just realized how I need to accept what happened and adapt, make other plans , wrap up work in that area, schedule a pending meeting or something. Because at that time the only way of coming out of despair was to be productive.
So I did that , and eventually ended up spending a very productive day, which wouldn’t have really happened had I been at home just working on my laptop.
The lesson I learned was that anything that happens does happen for the best . It’s not just a fancy quote been overused by our parents 😋
So make plans but be proactive and plan for any disruptions as well. Be flexible, stay positive and know that only the best is happening with you. Aite? 😇
