We can easily make the mistake of getting wrapped up in the details. It is not always to our advantage to plan down to the minutest detail before starting any action.
We need to make sure we have not overlooked any important steps or guidelines for determining direction but not the how. I have found that often my plan for how to get the results I want rarely lasts past my first action.
When we plan down to that much detail we can get locked into tunnel vision or worse when we need to make adjustments to what is going on we hesitate believing our whole plan needs to be rethought.
It can then become a form of procrastination. We need the ability and flexibility to take advantage of opportunities that arise from our actions. As long as we are maintaining movement towards our final destination then how we do it doesn't matter as long as we get there.
