I love making plans. I love making plans and following them. At least I used to. I have made so many plans in the past and fulfilled them too. But of late, my plans are falling apart.
To begin with I’m not coming up with stable plans. And following the plans has become a hassle for me. The moment I think this is working out; I’m following the plan better this time – it all falls apart. It’s like I go above and beyond to sabotage the plans and purposely destroy everything.
For example, I have been complaining about the lack of blogging interactions in the past. But the truth is, more than anything I am upset about my lack of interaction in the blogging world. I noticed that when I visit blogs and interact I am happy and complain free. It’s never about how many comments or likes I got for my posts – that much I can say without any confusion.
But when I don’t interact, I point the fingers at others. The excuses to help me out of guilt. That’s human nature.
We need to hold someone responsible, someone else, someone who is not us. Even though I know it was my lack of execution of plans that caused the displeasure.
In this case I failed to follow through with my plans and I made a dummy problem with no solutions by pointing fingers at others for the lack of blogging enthusiasm. This approach will never help me.
So what’s the solution?
Go back and make plans that will work.
Remember the ball is always in my court.
Get to work.
Don’t lose focus.
The onus lies on me. I can either crib about the failed plans and point fingers at others. Or, I can work out a better plan that fits better with my lifestyle and aspirations and work to achieve that.
No matter what the onus lies on me.
