Laws of Power – 29

Plan all the way to the end: The ending is everything. Plan all the way to it, taking into account all the possible consequences, obstacles, and twists of fortune that might reverse your hard work and give the glory to others. By planning to the end you will not be overwhelmed by circumstances and you will know when to stop. Gently guide fortune and help determine the future by thinking far ahead.

Like the grand finale of an opera, theatrical performance or even the performance of an Olympic athlete, planning from start to finish in great detail is integral to success. If you don’t know where you are going, then, how will you know the way? I have spent an honorable amount of time in the planning of the many facets in life that apply to my interests. Family, career, vocation, even simple projects around the house, is planned. I believe that my level of achievement and success dramatically increase with proper planning. A cautionary note is to avoid planning something to the point of a decrease in the desired result. Appropriate planning and then determined aggressive execution is the balance that I strive for. This is a skill with commitment, gets better with time.
