I’ve got a business, and I try and avoid as much as possible to make detailed plans of anything more than 30 days away. I always like to call plans for what they are: guesses.
If you start to replace the word “plan” by “guess”, then suddenly things become a little more light hearted. I’m a CEO, and so to the board of directors, I recently presented my 2017 Business Guess. 🙂
However, guessing about the future does have it’s benefits, and it’s very often worthwhile doing.
