The Day You Plan Versus The Day You Have

The Day You Plan Versus The Day You HaveI had an awesome idea for an article today and on top of that, it should have been written and finished about twelve hours ago. But there is a huge difference at times between the day you plan versus the day you have – and today was one of those days.

As I said, there is a difference between the day you plan versus the day you have – and if you were to look at the equation mathematically, it might just look like this…

TDYP – TDYH = LIFE

To put is simply, there will be times where your plans for the day just don’t fly… Life happens. Life is the difference…

Did anything catastrophic happen today? No. Did the earth stop spinning on it’s axis? No. And to be clear I didn’t have a true set plan or vision on how the day would end up but I had a general feel around everything that was to happen and how I wanted the day to end… I had a schedule, yes… but life had other plans.

Life had other ideas for my day; and pretty much from the time that my feet hit the floor this morning for the most part.

Some days you are the windshield. Some days you are the bug.

Some days you are the boxer. Some days you are the bag.

Some days you eat the bear and some days…

I think you get the point.

Am I complaining? Eh… maybe a little but not really. You see more good came out of today than bad.

Today I had to exercise my “flexibility” muscle and adjust on the fly as the day went on. Today I had to rely on my personal strength and resilience to muster through the day.

And today I had the great insight that life happens – and that is what the difference is between the day you plan versus the day you have and thank goodness for that…

Because if life didn’t happen… well… let’s just say I am not a fan of the alternative.
