On the verb


As you think about the plan you’ll notice that it’s not an event. It’s not a shoot out. It doesn’t have it’s feet in concrete.

It lives. In good and fertile earth. Flexible. It’s connected to every action – intended or otherwise. It’s a process that starts the first time you think of the goal and only ends when you close on a job well done.

It’s not a noun – not a thing, not something that sits around to be pointed at. Not action plans, not thud-factor plans. Real plans are verbs. Planning is an action in itself that sets up other actions. One of those actions is to monitor and review and recut and, and, and … react to reality and plan again.

Ok. Understood. Now what?

Let’s tweak, let’s change, let’s reevaluate where we are.

That means … oh! Let’s to that.

Skippy strategy: Forget the noun, focus on the verb.
