Planning is not an attempt to guess the future. Planning is the process of creating the future. You plan your actions, which will create the future. There is no place for divination or fear in planning, you simply create a ritual that you will follow and set yourself the goal that your actions have.
The moral is simple: we should avoid temptations, enticements and stupidities… We should establish a goal, come up with a plan …and keep to it for long years in a fanatic and obstinate manner… totally ignoring any attempt to seduce us out of the right way.
«the order» beat «class». If there is order, there will be the planned result. Your Being all smart and good isn't as important, your ability to maintain the order and follow the plan is much more important.
Need a win without a victory in any way. Great victory to wait a long time and you can be exhausted. Stripped big plan into small steps and rejoice with every small victory. When there were no victories for a long time, make a small feat and rejoice to it.
Yin and Yang are the boundary between the ocean and the sky. The border between past and future. The border is called now, at the edge of which living fish is the consciousness of man that is afraid to fall in the sky. And there live birds that catch fish, these are those who are not afraid of the future and know how to plan it well. In the depths of the ocean live the demons of the past, sometimes they eat dumb fish, diving deeper into the past than necessary. And in the past there is a coral Paradise, it is happiness that always lives in the past.
The danger of fantasies about the future, in view of the information nature of the world, lies in the fact that, in fact, these thoughts are already the realization of the future, and, having appeared, immediately pass into the category of the past, and nature does not like repetitions. Most likely, as it was in fantasy will be gone. On the other hand, do not confuse fantasy and planning. The nature of these phenomena is different.
Planning, a person thinks how to create the future and performs creative work. And fantasizing, he tries to share the skin of the unkillable bear, which, quite possibly, has very different plans for his skin.
Good news concerning the future or some successful arrangements about anything are, alas, not a guarantee of happiness or euphoria.
Promises and plans for the future are something that is not clear yet and it's a highly questionable thing.
It's only something that has already happened that should be celebrated and something that's real that one may feel happy about. As something real won't fade away and can be touched or felt as it already exists.
A big fear destroys small ones. He who fears of God, doesn't fear of anything else. Big problems make small ones seem insignificant. A real danger makes slightly dangerous things insignificant. He who fears of his owner's rage, doesn't fear of anything else.
It all makes a great practical sense. Many small fears poison a person's life. It's easier to get used to one big fear and to understand its origin and effects rather than trying to understand what to do about a thousand of small fears. So, it's better to deal with only one fear. It's more practical to learn the laws of a particular fear rather than studying many different rules and laws and being scared of any wrong moves.
It's important to set such a goal that after achieving its 80% result, it would be не стыдно было вовремя остановиться и зафиксировать прибыль.
Everything made to be more than 80% perfect, slows down this process and leads to death. Any thought going like this «well, that's all. I have done everything and now can relax and sleep a peaceful sleep» is the thought occurring a second before the end. Besides, it's also a thought leading to troubles and problems. Recollect the «last mile problem» or the fact that the final 20% of income result from 80% of your efforts.
The conclusion. Always leave some space for growth. There should always be an unrealized plan of growth. However, after having achieved 80% of growth, it's important to stop suddenly and avoid any changes or stop any progress. And it will save you from many problems.
Let's say you don't have the money for the project, but you have the language to ask for, the hands to write letters, the brain to plan your actions and the legs to go where you should. In the end, you can do everything yourself, even if it takes a little more time.
The plan is a closed hydraulic system. Changing one produces a change in everything else. Therefore, when some units lobby for something of their own-it automatically changes the position of all others.
