I admire people who have a strategy for life. Personally, I am the sort who bounces from one moment in life to another. I am not really a planner.
I bounced my way into a cult-like organisation over twenty years ago. I remember feeling as though I was a log caught in a river’s current, floating my way there, but completely out of my control. I did plan my way out, though, some six years later. It wasn’t really possible to get out without planning.
I stumbled into finding Hubster. We were introduced by my good friend, and true to her thoughts regarding us, we did actually connect, and we’re still together now, some seventeen years later. Interestingly, there was a man who I wanted to be with, years prior to meeting Hubster. I planned and strategised everything, but he never wanted me. Not truly. I was only a plaything.
I fell into university study, encouraged by Hubster. I enjoyed it, and did well, but I never planned to do it. If not for Hubster, I’d probably still be ignorant and stupid.
I am now in the job-seeking market. I do not have a strategy here either. I’m looking and applying and hoping.
There are some people I know who plan everything. And it all works out, exactly as planned. They strategise every aspect and minute detail. I admire them, like I mentioned earlier. But how does it work that way for them? Am I doing something fundamentally wrong? What are the secrets to a strategy, those that actually comes to fruition?
