Your plans are your faith in yourself. You plan something and you believe that it will succeed. Belief is never totally rational. There is always a pinch (sometimes tons) of emotions in a plan. Plans always succeed in mind. Plans are always a million-dollar idea. Plans always bring you fame. When you plan a startup, you believe in that idea. You do try to be logical and rational but faith is always there. You might have junked tens of plans before starting ‘the one’ but it's also a plan.
But, plans are based on your past experiences and your learning from various sources. Tell you, past experiences don’t exactly repeat in the future and learning is way different from executing in ground dirty reality. Infrastructure, hiring, budget, client payments, and processes are all plans. And they will all go haywire.
You planned to hire; you planned to create, you planned to deliver. That's ideal plan stuff, but things are totally different on the ground.
But, that’s the thrill. Entrepreneurs dare. Plans will fail. And only then some plan will click. Plans are not failing, they are teaching you. Your faith in yourself will finally work. Your n-th plan will surely work.
This is the time to plan and today is the time to execute.
