The Best Way to Get Things Done. To Plan or Not To Plan. Why Ask That Question? This Is Why

   The Planning Conundrum?
Let's Find Out What The REAL Best Way To Get Thing's Done Is!
I am going to explain to you how I look at planning. It's just my opinion. Please feel free to ask questions or offer any critiques or criticisms! 

     The word "now" means exactly that, right now. There is comfort and beauty in the fact that "now" is and always will be, right now or currently happening. It can not and will not ever change. We will always know when it's happening, so there wont be any surprises. In knowing and understanding this, subconsciously sometime consciously, we become more confident from the feeling of being prepared.

     Most people feel less stressed when they know what's coming next, so they form habits or routines that allow them to plan their day to feel more in control of their hectic lives, sort of like auto-pilot. My personal opinion is that this is wrong and sets you up for a boring, unhappy, and doomed results eventually. Even though, by the masses, it is considered a critical tool to learn to plan. I believe that planning and knowing what needs to be done are two different things.
     Let me explain, when you make a plan for something it's safe to say that you are making the plan to feel more in control and to be successful, correct? No matter what, even if you are the best planner in the world, if you make a plan for something to happen, there is absolutely no guarantee that it will happen according to plan. The second things stop going according to how we planned or how they were expected to, we feel that  imaginary sense of control ripped right out from under us. This makes us feel more out of control than ever and are not able to make the best decisions of how to handle the situations that we are encountering at the present moment (now). 
     Our mind becomes bogged down with anxiety, fear, worry, self-consciousnesses, feeling of being out-of-control, thinking of the negative consequences that are going result instead of concentrating on the problem at hand. The Law of Attraction is an extremely powerful scientific theory; which is basically, if you think it will happen, it will happen. When things stop going according to plan or something happens we didn't anticipate and plan for, our mind cannonballs from the obvious false feeling of "control" in to negativity and self-doubt subconsciously and consciously. 
     It is true, positivity breeds positivity (like a small is contagious and others cant help but to smile back) but it also true that negativity breeds negativity (when someone is crying it can affect the whole room). The more negativity in your heart and mind, the more negativity will continue to grow. This becomes even more important because then according to the Law of Attraction  this will end in in tangible negative results not just anxieties or fear. 
     Luckily we can change this outcome before it begins and turn it in to a happy, positive, knowledgeable experience that will benefit ourselves and others physically, psychologically and spiritually. Instead of planning what your going to do step-by-step, KNOW WHAT NEEDS TO BE DONE, and Live Now. Decisions are made from examination of present circumstances and our intuitions. Sounds easy and it is. In fact it's natural, it only becomes hard when our minds are bogged down with thoughts of anxieties, self-doubt, the past, and the future. 
     Do not throw away everything you learned in school and in life about planning because that is not what I intended. Planning has it's benefits, those people that are much to anal, plan everything little step, even plan when to use the restroom. Planning in the sense of knowing what needs to be done by when is the kind of planning I endorse full heartily. 
     Tell yourself, "I know what needs to be done, and I promise myself that I will remain concentrated in the present moment in order to handle the obstacles that incur to the best of my abilities and in order to make the best decision that will lead me closer to my desired result." This sums it all up, remaining observant and solely concentrating on the task at hand allows you to better make the decisions and steps that will lead you closer to your desired goal. This will also eliminate worrying and anxieties completely as well because I wrote in a previous article, "It's Our Turn, Now! Live Now. Make a Difference and Change the World." that said when living in the present moment (now) it is impossible to worry because the definition of 'worry' in itself is to think about past or future events. I also went on to say that " the present moment (now) is the only time that can ever affect anything, so why wouldn't you want full concentration on the present? " 
     My final reason for believing this is a better approach for getting things done happily, accurately, and positively is because with this approach you also allow yourself to heighten your intuition which is another key factor in good decision makings. While concentrated on the present moment your self-awareness and awareness in general is heightened. I will go in to more detail about intuition in my next posting, but quickly it is your body's way of giving you the most accurate advice on decision-making in milliseconds. This is where all the things from your past that you have ever experienced with any of the five sense are stored in your mind and your brain quickly runs through all the combinations of senses in each particular situation sending your body signals to help with your decision making. I believe that this is a much better way of doing this than consciously dwelling on the past. Remember, our mind remember everything, everything seen, touched, smelled, heard, or tasted. But our memories tend to be extremely vague and foggy.
