But how about just planning to fail?
Planning for failure
My youngest son has to do a book report this year, and unlike his two older brothers he's already carefully planning for it.
'I chose Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, mommy,' he smiled. '
It's got 956 pages, and I'm only at page 237. I'll never finish it in time for my book report, so I won't have to do it this year!'
Which just goes to show the importance of planning.
To fail in this case.
