Planning can be a really helpful thing to do.  Developing strategies and planning our steps can be like a road map for achieving our goals.  But when we get so caught up in the details, we don’t go anywhere.

We don’t have to plan things to perfection before we get started.  We don’t even have to know how things will happen.  Just the next few steps is enough.

We don’t have to be rigid in our details either.  If one step doesn’t work, we can try another.  If we stumble across a better idea, we can go in that direction.

It’s important to keep an open mind and heart when making plans so you don’t get stuck in the details.
