A long time ago, in Ancient Greece, there lived a great philosopher that went by the name of Heraclitus. Among the many philosophical theories that he devised, one in particular stands out; that ever-present change is the fundamental essence of the universe. He believed that, the only constant thing in life is change, that no man can step into the same river twice, that “everything flows” (“τα πάντα ρει”).
Heraclitus couldn’t be closer to the truth. What held true then, in Ancient Greece, still holds true today, in the modern world. From the day we are born until the day our life journey comes to an end, we experience one change after another – we switch jobs, some new people come to our life while others depart from it, our children have a change of heart and decide that they don’t want to study accountancy when they grow up but architecture instead, and the tuition fees have now moved up to €100.000 from the originally-estimated €30.000. Change is an essential ingredient of life, so present in the latter as oxygen itself.
So, what do we do about change, how do we tackle it? First, we plan for it. We anticipate it. We refuse to let it catch us by surprise. Then we take action. We put safeguards in place, so that, when change comes, we are prepared to embrace it rather than fear it.
Planning can be very effective when done correctly. We may not be able to predict the future and the Delphi Oracle is no longer at our disposal for rendering prognostication services, however there are certain things that we can do so as to ensure that our future, although unpredictable, it will hold rays of sunlight and not drops of rain when it comes about.
The key to good and effective planning is to have a thorough understanding of your needs, current and future. A detailed assessment of these needs will indicate what you will be required to do now so as to arrive at a future that you commanded, not the other way around.
But what about our ever-changing world; the one which, according to Heraclitus, constantly flows? If the action that we take at a given juncture is based on our future needs as such are perceived today, then what about tomorrow, when the current of the river has changed? This is where good planning comes into play, as such is dynamic, proactive, and changes with every change.
