Plans are great.
Plans can keep us accountable.
Plans can help us know what to expect of ourselves.
Plans can help us know what to expect of our results (if the plan is sound).
As useful as plans are, planning can be a problem at times.
We can get so caught up in trying to create the perfect plan.
The perfect training program.
The perfect diet strategy.
The perfect recovery regimen.
That we don’t act.
We never actually do anything with our plan.
We’re too busy planning.
The truth is, there’s no such thing as a perfect plan.
You’ll never know exactly what to do.
Even when you have a plan, you’ll need to make adjustments.
If your next step moves you toward your goal, great.
If not, you know that you need to try something else.
That’s still progress.
Act, assess, adjust.
You’ve got this.
