“The possibilities are numerous once we decide to act and not react.”— George Bernard Shaw
When we act we’re implying that we have made a plan and maybe rehearsed the act in our heads. A plan is important because it gives us something to fall back on and to focus our energies which means we don’t have to react when something comes up. A plan gives us more of a direction and forces us to keep our attention on the tasks that we set up in the plan. We don’t have to wait for external events to forced us to act instead we can start making decisions on what sort of plan we want for us to act accordingly. Planning gives us more control over our lives with fewer reactions.
