If you don’t know where you’re going, any road will lead you there. Let me rephrase that. If you don’t know where you’re going, you can never be lost. We only get lost when we plan to achieve something and end up distracted, and achieving nothing or something of no importance to us.
It’s important to plan even if we don’t have a clear picture of everything yet. It’s important to have a vision even if it will constantly change as we unlearn and relearn. It’s important to fully focus our mind, time, and energy on something we’re passionate about even if we have no clue on how we’re going to succeed at it.
It’s okay to be clueless. Many of us don’t have everything thought through. Many of us don’t have our lives completely together. Forget about the confidence people wear. It’s makeup. It’s just pretense. We’re simply faking it until we make it. Many of us don’t have any idea of what we’ll do for the rest of our lives, and it’s okay.
However, it’s only right that we make plans. Plan A, and then Plan B in case Plan A doesn’t work, because when we fail to plan for the future, guess what? We end up in someone else’s plan for us. And trust me, it’s not in our best interest.
