Failing to plan, is planning to fail

July 11, 2016

Failing to plan, is planning to fail, the saying goes.

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.

  4. The joy of raising boys! Teaching boys to plan ahead and break big projects into small tasks is a mom's joy (wink, wink).
