This quote showed up today:
In preparing for battle I have always found that plans are useless, but planning is indispensable. – Dwight D. Eisenhower
Okay, so Ike was talking about battle, but I could not help but notice his point applies to creating intentions as well.
In "battle" (the dusty, dusty world that we all live in) things happen that we do not expect and we must adapt and adjust accordingly. While the specific "plans" may change on the fly, the broader intention (the planning) must stay in tact.
Hope that’s clear 🙂
