You need a goal, and you need a plan to get you to your goal.
The goal is more important than the plan. Get that wrong and everything else doesn’t matter.
When it comes to the plan, don’t plan too far ahead.
Every step you take will result in more information and unforeseen outcomes.
“No battle plan survives contact with the enemy,” Helmuth von Moltke.
Don’t spend time and energy working on a plan you’ll throw away.
Pick you goal.
Plan the first few steps.
