    I HATE doing detailed plans or working out in advance what I will be doing. I kinda need an end goal (like 'x needs to be completed by the end of 2011') but that's all the structure I usually need, so I voted 'I do what I need to do as I go along'.

    I assumed that the goals and plans meant detailed ones, like what some of my colleagues seem to need.

    The key phrase for me is "more effectively." I feel pretty capable of on-the-fly functioning, but good to have goals and at least a roughed-in plan so I can achieve what I want.

    To be as effective as possible Ill need an end goal and plan in mind, however, Im going to enjoy making it up as I go more and as such would keep motivation for longer that way.

    More effectively? With a plan, of course, but that's usually not my style. If your question isn't meant to be taken so literally, then I'll say I would almost always do things as I go. It's more fun that way and I'll stay more motivated. If it's something very important, I fully recognize the power of having clear-cut goals and plans.

    I will not externalize my plans (as in, write them down) unless it's really needed, but I always have a rough course of action mapped out in my mind. Of course, that can be and usually is modified along the way, but I don't rush into things helter skelter.
    Not really.

    I make goals all the time, but the way my mind works makes them futile. I get more accomplished if I just allow what happens to happen. I get better quality work done if I do what I have to do as I go along.
