Un-planning

Most of us, thanks to Disney, are familiar with the un-birthday.  I'd like to introduce to the un-plan.  It's like a road map, but less precise. It's also like a calendar with no dates just vague indications of "soon", "later", and "in the future".

For the last few years, I have become an expert at the un-plan.  I think things through, make task lists, create and idea for the future, but I have also found that putting any of these on the calender means they get cancelled all together.  It's not easy, and it certainly isn't a fun way to live, but it does, for the moment work (sort of).

When plans go awry, I've found that adjusting, re-prioritizing, and letting go of as many due dates as possible can be the only way to not lose my head.  At least this is what I keep telling myself when I get impatient and frustrated.

  1. I used to be a person who wanted to plan every trip. I finally learned that spur of the moment or half thought about trips that happen all of sudden can be much more fun.
