What’s Your Plan for Today?

Do you have a plan or are you more the fly by the seat of your pants type of person? Can you be found making lists and schedules before any excursion to ensure that everything passes off perfectly or do you grab a bag and fly out the door? Organised or spontaneous?

I like to think that I’m organised but I’m really not and I find that my plans very rarely work out as I expect them to. Today, I’m meeting a friend and the plan is that we will go for a long walk in the mountains, commune with nature and then stop for lunch before heading back. Sounds like a plan?

I know that there will definitely be mountains, albeit not very big ones (about 650m up) but I also know that to get to the part where we’ll start communing we will have to pass lots of little boutiques and coffee shops and I can’t help feeling that I’ll end up less Bear Grylls and more Carrie Bradshaw.

The idea of walking up in the beautiful sunshine to arrive at the summit and marvel at the stunning views is really appealing…..in my imagination…..The reality is more likely to be hot and sweaty (supposed to be 25 degrees today), arriving at the top with wobbly legs, totally unable to appreciate the view due to the gallons of sweat that have poured into my eyes and the inability to remain standing. Saying all that I can’t help but feel that I would have a real sense of achievement so………there’s no real sense of focus here is there? Maybe that’s why I’m rubbish at planning? Perhaps I should just keep it simple.

The plan for today is to meet my friend. What happens from there I’ll wait and see (that’s probably more apathy than spontaneity if I’m honest!)

Are you a meticulous planner? If so can you give me some handy hints on how to be more organised?

Have a great day everyone, whether it goes to plan or not ;O)

    I am a planner, but not to the minor details. Just the outline. And from there, I play by the ear. Keeps a bit of excitement in the ordinary! 😊

    Spontaneous of mind,organised in hope,planning via wife… ask for your friends help to climb the hill… if you want to do it… is there one to drive up? 🙂 I have loads of different reminder apps and forget which one I use… eventually narrowing it down to ticktick – google keep and their inbox are useful. My thing is if I don’t see it it doesn’t exist,so to avoid mess, its reminders all the way. I can ignore them.. but they happen often enough things get done eventually,more often than they would if there was no reminder…. have a fun day 🙂

      In the end the walk wasn’t too bad at all and the views were worth it 😊
      Yes I’m with you for the reminders – if my phone doesn’t tell me I need to do chances are it won’t get done 😉 you too xx

    I used to be much more spontaneous, but to tell the truth I make a lot of plans now, plan a, plan b and so on…the tip is not to stress if none of it goes as planned, and try to stay in the moment.

    I’m a meticulous planner, but my days rarely go as planned because I overplan. 😉

    My mom was a list maker, and it rubbed off on me. However, even the best-laid plans can go awry, so I’ve learned to keep my plans loose and just roll with it. It sounds like you are doing the same thing, which will leave you open to whatever life has for you to experience🙂

    I generally plan my day then adjust on the fly. Today I plan to get to work early since I know it’s gonna be a nightmare day. Have a great walk!

    Weekdays; get up. Go to work. Be bored and stressed for eight hours. Go to gym. Cook dinner. Wash dishes. Go to bed. Repeat.
    Weekends; get up, do what I am told, go to bed. 😉😊
