There you go perfect nothing more nothing less.I’d like that I’m sure everyone would also like that too. Nobody wants to be in a session later than what is required. But what if you get sick for a semester or break your arm or whatever that 22 gets pushed to 23 or 24. Now there goes your perfectly planned life. So how to deal with that? Here let me paint it plainly for you. I did graduate at 22 from a top school. Ideally I was supposed to get a job or an admission right after that and what happened? You guessed it didn’t go as planned. This is just to give a glimpse of the unpredictability of life. So let’s get back to what we were talking about. Planning most of the time we panic at the slightest change of obvious. Here is how going with the following can ease your stress levels by a country mile.
DON’T BE RIGID
Ever wondered why after a strong wind trees fall and little plants don’t? Simple trees are important but are mostly rigid that is why they fall. Similarly: plan but keep an open-end for changes, be flexible enough to encounter, and compensate for any sudden changes. Be open to accept changes, they might seem difficult but at times they are the best thing that could ever happen. Rigidity in any part of life would only chain you up so instead of being a prisoner to that try being flexible for once and you would feel a lot better. Trust me on this!
PREDICTION IS A MOOD KILLER
Yea I know corny heading, I’m just making stuff up as I’m going. Now here is the thing in this highly predictable world prediction is inhumane in my opinion. I mean there is nothing special to it, a computer program can do that. Don’t trust me to ask a machine learning graduate they do this for a living. So instead of trying your luck and exhausting your think tank to predict the outcome of a certain event let the play roll out first, it gives you a better chance at handling things. Unless it’s a pandemic then you must start early. Everything else can be awaited for no need to dive in a pool head-on with less water. So try letting things play out first.
BEAUTY OF LIFE
Somebody important once said: nothing good ever comes out of planning. Somehow we already are aware of this fact, but we do ignore it for some unforeseeable circumstances. Planning is a good thing, appreciable even but it rarely breeds any quality other than profiteering from being an opportunist which is not bad, morally questionable though. Imagine this you plan all the outcomes, possible outcomes, to a situation that shows you a visionary. But it doesn’t go that way your entire planning, staking and calendars go to waste and there is always that one guy in our lives who is gonna be grinning and say: I told you so. Remember the only reason life is worth living due to its unpredictability and that’s why you should live every day. Not just go by it, live your days.
So to conclude it is simple “ life rarely goes as planned”, heck I wanted to be an economist. Now I write scripts and I didn’t see that coming. Your boyfriend is texting the girl, you didn’t see that coming or maybe you did but you didn’t see yourself moving on from that either.we never see anything coming unless its right in our faces mostly it hurts but in the long run that is the best thing that will ever happen to you. It’s just a matter of time before you realize and say: “damn I didn’t see that coming” and you have a cup of coffee in your hand on a lazy rainy Sunday morning.
