Be surprised when things go as per plan

“I wait for you to make a plan so I can make a complete mockery of it and mess it up.” | The Universe

If the universe could talk, I’m certain that would be something it would say. As human beings, we attach ourselves to positive outcomes more often than we should and then waste a lot of energy worrying and cursing when our plans inevitably go awry.

The only way around is to consistently take the opposite stance – be surprised when things go as per plan… because, when you are sitting amidst chaos today having just watched your grand plan disintegrate in the last few hours, you ought to know that all is normal in this world.

No reason for annoyed reactions. Smile, remember the duck – keep calm above water and paddle hard underneath, and carry on.
