What’s your plan for this week?

If experience has taught me anything, the most common answer to that will be “To get to the end of it”.

And, let’s be honest, the plans we set in life are usually the best that happens.

Sometimes we set plans and don’t achieve them, sure.

Occasionally we massively exceed them.

But not often.

Usually our plan is the best case scenario for what will happen.

So if the extent of our plan for the week is to “get to the end of it”……….

Then come the end of the week, that’s all we’re going to feel that we’ve done.

If we have no specific plan for the week……….

Then we are planning for default behaviour.

If our default behaviour leads to us getting to the end of the week feeling it was productive we were happy with how it went, then that’s awesome.

If we usually get to the end of the week desperate for the weekend so we can sedate……….

Then our lack of non default plan leading to default behaviour was always going to create that situation.

We’re often reluctant to set a non-default plan as it creates the conditions for perceived failure.

Deciding that we’re going to do something, and then it not happening is an invitation to feeling bad.

But it’s only an invitation.

We don’t have to accept it.

It’s all in how we choose to frame it.

We definitely weren’t going to achieve that thing if we didn’t plan to do it.

Planning to do it increases the chances of it happening.

Not planning just hides it.

The intention is not to get to the end of every week having absolutely nailed every possible thing that we could have done.

But is our intention for the rest of our lives going to be to get to the end of every week thinking it was “a bit sh!t” and being glad that we “got through it”?

If it’s not, and I’m sure it’s not for you……….

Then could we benefit from setting a more specific intention for the week that will take us in the direction that we want to go in life……….

And then planning, scheduling and just doing those things that will do that?
