    In preparing for battle I have always found that plans are useless, but planning is indispensable. -Dwight D. Eisenhower

    Everybody's got plans... until they get hit. -Mike Tyson

    If you want to make God laugh, tell him about your plans. -Woody Allen

    So, plan? Sure. But please don't come to believe that your plan IS the objective (or that your plan is going to work). Those who are slaves to their day-planner are often tyrants to the rest of us. So I plead: plan softly and lightly, not with an iron fist. "Unrighteous dominion" is not the way of the Savior's priesthood. Patience, long-suffering, gentleness, unfeigned love and kindness (which greatly enlarges the soul), are (D&C 121:41-42).

    Very wise words on planning and genuine success in life are: "Come what may, and love it." -Elder Joseph Worthlin A short clip showing him saying can be found on YouTube

    This bit of wisdom is not far from the same idea: "A good traveler has no fixed plans, and is not intent on arriving." -Lao Tzu
