Plan to Plan
One can never plan too much which is why it does not seem odd to plan, to plan. Planning is a process by which, the aim and the method to reach it, are clearly defined before attempting to begin anything. Our lives are actually easier when we are more organized and if we move from one plan to another, we are making a comfort zone for ourselves.
As students, if a plan is chalked out that puts goals to be achieved on a daily basis, a weekly basis, a monthly basis, a half-yearly basis and finally, on an annual basis, the aim in itself emerges out so clearly that different work strategies may be developed, to achieve it. Alternatively, it will also be self-indicative if the plan is unsuccessful and allow you to make the required changes in your plan, well in time. If this sounds complicated, the example will perhaps throw some light on it. Ashok decides that he will study for an hour daily which excludes his school time and the home work time:—This is his- daily study plan. Ire-hopes to revise two chapters in each subject by every Sunday. He finds on a Sunday that he has fallen behind task and his maths lessons are lagging. He now alters his daily plan for the next week to reach his weekly aim.
While planning simplifies things for us we ought to take care not to be totally plan dependent. Life throws its surprises which we are unprepared for. Under such circumstances we should take smart decisions and quick action and not get upset at not having planned. A little bit of impulsive action can add spice to life too.
