If a good day for you means you were in control and most everything worked out the way you planned it, then buckle up…you’re probably in for a rough ride.
This does not mean you do not plan and prepare.
Neither does it mean you throw up your hands and quit when emergencies and crises barge into your day.
Having structure, organizing, and planning is…well…a good practice. It defines priorities, sets directions, and helps you be a good steward of the resources under your care.
But you must not become a slave to these things either. For I promise you, without fail, the unexpected is on the way (expect it!) and it will come at the worse possible moment and in the most aggravating way.
To pretend otherwise is to set yourself up for a frustrating day.
I have a friend who likes to say, when the unexpected happens, “Just go with it.”
I’m not sure exactly what that even means; but then, that’s probably the point. Sometimes you just have to go with it and settle for reasonably controlled chaos.
The ONE THING for today: Atta-boy for planning out a good day. I hope it works out; I really do. But in the likely event that your plans get hijacked, just to go with. Sometimes, reasonably controlled chaos is the best you can do and that’s okay.

I suspect most of my blogs are mostly about keeping me straight! This one sure is. Maybe you need to be reminded as well… 🙂
