Some people fail because they plan too much. Others fail because they plan too little.
And it’s very important to understand your own personal tendency.
People who plan too much get distracted from their goals. They spend their life learning the fundamentals and forget why they’re learning them.
They have trouble attempting to create the finished product. And they are often frustrated that they’ve achieved a high skill level at something but still aren’t doing what they want to do.
These are the people that focus on, ‘the thing before the thing.’
People who plan too little dive into their ideas. They grab them by the balls and give it a shot. And they fail a lot because they realize too late that they needed more knowledge, understanding, and skill before attempting something so challenging.
These are the people that refuse to do anything other than, ‘the thing.’
Achievement is a constant balance and interplay between the two concepts.
Sometimes you must prepare, sometimes you must try.
If you only do one or the other. You’ll either lose because you never tried, or you’ll lose because you weren’t ready.
