“The plan is useless. But planning is essential.”
– Dwight D. Eisenhower

Who doesn’t like planning a vacation? Decide where you’re going, look at the activities, attractions, restaurants, hotels, and the route. When I was a kid, we’d get together before our big backpacking trips and plan routes, food, what to pack. As an adult, I’d join my wife planning our family vacations. Planning is part of the fun.
And planning your own business? That too. Set your strategy, and the tactics to execute it. Figure out pricing, marketing, product. It’s dreaming and telling stories, and then adding what it takes to make them come true. It’s making things happen. It’s going from a vague, daunting, hard-to-manage uncertainty to specific educated guesses, linked together, so you can deal with them. Get things done.
