Death By Planning

Strategizing outlines how something could work.  Drafting initiates work.  But rough drafts are quasi-complete shipments.  

The reality of any work is in the execution and refinement, not in the strategic planning and shitty first drafts.  The whole point of starting is to get it done or to find out that you have a problem.

You’re more likely to finish what you started when you feel closer to the finish line.  Expectations drive fulfillment.

Planning is a wonderful way to step back and envision how things could work.  But getting your hands dirty always results in new perspectives.  

The only way to get input is to learn through output.  

“It always seems impossible until it’s done.” – Nelson Mandela  

Now is the only time there is.
