As parents, we plan for family dinner to be delicious and bonding. As lovers, we plan to surprise and please our partner. As professionals, we plan to accomplish our work, not only competently, but in ways that inspire others.
Unfortunately, things don’t always turn out as planned. Sometimes this is because other people don’t show up the way we expected them too. Sometimes we try something new, and due to ignorance or lack of experience, we completely blow it.
Having things not go as planned is part of being alive. It is how we respond to these moments that make all the difference.
