What way do you go about planning? Do you plan everything or do you only plan when you have to or when something specific is happening such as a wedding or funneral? Do you see yourself anyplace or any different in five years for instance and have a five year plan? Have you always been this way or is it something which you've had to adopt as a result of work or as you've grown up?
Are you the sort of person who prefers spontaneity to planning and prioritising and how does that differ? What are the benefits and costs of each to you do you think?
Sometimes I find planning and prioritising are motivating, I do it a lot of the time without thinking and it has been as a result of work, I've adopted a lot of theory, like task centering, solutions focused planning and crisis management and internalised it but then sometimes it is demotivating when I have a day that I've had no plans and realise the time has passed and I've done nothing that day or that morning or whatever.
What about you guys?
