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)
