I think I am learning to plan. When I haven’t written any plans down for a day or two, it feels like I’m flying blind. I’ve thought of renaming my ‘Plans and Ideas’ book to ‘Panic Mitigation,’ because that’s the effect that it has. 13 months ago

From what I’ve experienced the past week or two, it seems to me that the more time I spend in planning, the more productive I am. While this may be obvious on the macro scale, on the micro scale it means I have to not worry about spending time I ‘should’ be ‘working’ on planning. 16 months ago
A plan, like any written document, does not spring fully formed from the mind of a god-like intelligence. It is created, through sweat and uncertainty, word by word. Because plans are not created instantly, they are often overtaken by events. This is more likely to happen to daily plans than to long-term plans. Working on the principle that it is good to experience plans being overtaken by events, to better understand the process, it is therefore important to create as many daily plans as possible. 17 months ago
Somehow the notion escaped me so far, but today I realized that planning actually takes time. It is not just a matter of writing down a list of things that’s supposed to happen. It is getting information, parsing it, making decisions, and then recording it. It is a process that takes a finite amount of time. With practice it will become faster, but it will still take time. 17 months ago
Oh, my life is so leisurely. I don’t plan, I just float from one thing to the next.
Funny thing is, when there’s a busy day ahead, I plan it. Which is really silly, because all the things that day is more-or-less going to happen in any case. I probably just want to feel in control.
When the day is not busy, i.e. there is nothing scheduled to happen, I don’t plan. Which is stupid, because on these days I need to make things happen which wouldn’t otherwise happen. So less of them happen than would be possible.
So how can I learn to make my off-days feel out of control, so that I plan them better? 18 months ago
