I was filling information for a business grant application the other day when it hit me: it’s possible, or even likely, that most of these things written down (goals, expectations, plans, scheduled milestones) will change almost completely within the next 6 months.
Now I’m not against having plans. But I do think plans don’t account for real life events such as a family member getting admitted to a hospital, or getting featured on a notable media platform, or a sudden health problem, or spending an additional couple thousand to get out of student debt—or what’s more probable: general changes in mind.
Things almost never go exactly as planned. Consider expectations accordingly.
