Planning the Deck Chairs

Planning the Deck Chairs

There is no “perfect time” to do something. If it’s important, simply do it. Don’t get involved in elaborate plans, stay light on your feet, and make changes as you proceed. I believe that’s called “agility.”

The sarcastic statement is about the futility of rearranging the deck chairs on the Titanic. The problem is that some people are first sitting down to create a plan to rearrange the deck chairs.

That’s an iceberg up ahead. Steer clear of it or get off the boat.
