“Plans are nothing. Planning is everything.”

Who am I to argue with General Dwight D. Eisenhower?   He made the comment in this post’s title regarding the Normandy invasion.  He was reflecting upon how little the actual battle resembled the D-Day plan; a plan that resulted from a truly stupendous effort on the part of the Allies.

Plans are nothing. Planning is everything.

    There are many who would argue that they don’t have the time to meticulously plan (I know, don’t get me started on that one either) We actually spend more time when things backfire so why not front end that time allotment and consider it an investment well spent.

  • Thanks, Paul! Your comment reminds me of one of those old cliches that also happens to have real teeth: “We never have time to do it right, but we always have time to do it over.” – Todd
