Thanks William and Jason! I had a blast!
How do I link the incongruence?
I’m able to spot opportunities because of my rigid planning. If something better than my plan comes up, I go with the flow. With planning, I can quickly filter out value from noise.
As I’m writing this, I’m at a bar (Good Times at Davey Wayne’s) chilling out by the dance floor. In 5 minutes, I got asked to dance, got a friendly punch in the chest, and met a cool group of people. If I had just followed my plan and left after checking out the bar, I would’ve missed out on an experience like that.
How is punching someone in the chest a way of connecting with them?...What happened to hello??? (It was a serious punch too.) I think I’m a little too close to opportunity, so I will take a step back...
TLDR: Definitely plan but don’t be afraid to throw them away if something better comes along.
