Do you plan the things you want to do?

Sometimes I'm tired of planning and not doing it in the end. Sometimes or always my plans are not usually met. I don't know why.... maybe it is not that realistic but still wanna do it. Hmmm... I hate the feeling that I wanna do something but I cannot do it now. Have that kind of feeling before?

Generally i made daily plans which are small and are like routine schedules.The big plans always seemed to end up to nothing but some of them come to a happy ending after a long time. When i stop planning something and say that it can't be done then suddently the plan starts to work and my purpose comes to a happy end.This does not always happening but most of the times it does!So i feel lucky when something like that happens.

I am not a planner type of girl. I love being spontaneous! I was used to this since I learned my lesson. Previously when I planned all that things I want to do, I couldn't feel any surprise or excitement in anything that I would do. And worst! Whenever I don't get to accomplish my plans, i will be discouraged and feel dismayed. So when I tried being spontaneous, it works for me! So much excitement, so much adventure!

I understand your situation and your position very well vycess i have been there where you are right now. Planning on things but was never able to do them and then planning on again the next day thinking this time i am going to do it for sure.Things don't happen the way we think do they, no they don't but it not impossible to make things right be responsible. Days go on and on one after the other time flies away, it waits for none not for you not for me and all we can do is utilize it as precisely as we can making use of it at its optimum. You say that you are able to meet up with your plans because may be they are not realistic, Is it true? Think again vycess i say they are realistic not all but some or may be all isn't it.If you can you can do it if you see yourself doing it then i am sure you can.No one sets impossible goals for themselves they always set possible goals but the path the sacrifices the pain the difficulties they have to encounter to reach their goals make them think that they are impossible.Even getting up early in the morning on cold day seems like killing feeling if you unable to sacrifice your sleep and even climbing up to the everest mountain won't trouble you if you have the will. Just like i told craziestqueenever i will tell you Vycess "Believe in Yourself" and see things things becoming easy and everything falling into places the exact places.

I used to plan the things that I wanted to do but I end up doing nothing. A friend of mine told me that she doesn't plan the things because sometimes it turned out to be not the things that she wanted to do. How I wish that I can stop this kind of attitude. I'm such a great Procrastinator.

hi craziestqueenever.You don't blame all yourself for not doing things that you won't to do.Sometimes there are circumstances which are not under our control and make our hands slip of those things which are under our control.I use call myself the same Procrastinator but not anymore never and i am sure that you will too.You just need focus get your mind straight make an aim for the stuff have that willpower, have that determination, take your decision wisely, choose wisely, manage yourself, believe in yourself and let go of yourself and you will achieve your aspirations.Start with small things and go your way up to the bigger tasks. Always remember you can do anything if you set your mind to it.

hi, setting a plan for the things i want to do is a redundant to me, because there were times that i set a plan and suddenly will ruin it by my schedule,so useless plan only,i think its better to plan when the date is there.

I hate planning anything. I know that when ever I d nothing seems to work out right. So, what I do is make a note of things that need to be done and I do the ones that I am in the mood for at the moment. That way all the things I need to do get done.

I think that with life, you get used to that. That even when you make the best of plans, there is still no guarantee that it will come into fruition, or even start to happen for that matter. So, you try and adjust, and re-adjust all the time. And you make smaller and smaller plans that are achievable.

Of course everyone has that experience before. It is very frustrated but this is life. Even though plans are not usually met but I still carry on planning.

Making plans is important. In the end, you can evaluate your plan and see why you can not do it, You'd be better off writing it down, so you can check which is accomplished and which is not. From the list of plan, you can make a more reasonable and realistic plan in the future. The problem is we are not disciplined in making plans.

As for me, yeah, sometime I am actually planning on what will I do however, sometimes what I planned didn't happen at all. For all we know that no one knows what will comes next in the future either if its later, tomorrow or the next day. Unless if you do believe in fortune-tellers or prophets who guesses the future happenings. I had also experienced before when I planned for something and it happened according to my plan like the parties and events. I guess, if there's something I want to do, I'll think twice for it first before doing it and do it directly when I have the time and chance because doing what we plan can be considered as our success.. Thanks for opening this topic :)

Yes, I do that most of the times. But I make it a point to make it a short list because I only end up not doing everything. It really is frustrating to find ourselves making an effort to plan things and not being able to do everything.

I sometimes like to plan things out, but I often find that it doesn't work out, so I most just depend on spontaneity - when the opportunity presents itself, I try to take advantage of it.

I do not plan my daily schedule.. I like to take things as it comes.. never thought of planning as there are many different things that comes which you may not have thought..but when you are not able to met the plans that does not mean you are not capable of doing it .. it just means that you need better plan.. search online for help about planning things.. Best of luck..

There tends to be a fair bit of planning in what I do. I have always been the type of person who is not too much at ease with the unexpected. I tend to have this grand vision of where I really want to go to say the very least. there are just going to be a lot of times where plans are going to be made and I feel that this is the way to follow it. I know however, that there are a lot of times where a plan will fall off the rails. So yeah, you can really try and be flexible to say the very least. There are just going to be times where life tends to rather throw some curveballs. I am rather going to go with the flow as much as I can, but there are times where it is rather just something that catches me for a complete loop.

Most of the time I plan the things I want to do. For example, this is the thing I want to do for this day. There are times my plans didn't succeed because of some problems or circumstances occurred which I didn't expect to happen and eventually it will be cancel.

I've been to this feeling too and most of my plans won't come true. I guess my plans are not realistic. It's just on my mind. I hope that one day my plans will happen as what I've planned for.

Some times when the work is totally on us then we can make a plan and when we have the freedom to get the other requirements to fulfill the plan then only our plans do get into realistic if not we just plan and we depend on some one then the plan has to be changed slightly and made some additional plans added to it ,and the main plan gets some where lost.

yeah this is actually I want to do. Before doing anything I plan everything. But the sad thing is that it won't happen anything like that I have planned.Don't know why this so. Some times I may think that this is happening only to me.
