Planning is guessing.
Being reactive costs 3 times more than planning.
As a leader, what do you do? The answer is in the middle.
Set high-level goals and lay a path for how you’re going to get there.
You can’t know exactly what it will take to achieve what you want.
And, what you want might change based on what you learn by walking down the path to your goal.
So, don’t bother with detail. Just start and be flexible.
