There are those who plan to the milli-second of time and detail. And those who enjoy no planning and flying by the seat of their pants. Let’s take both choices and discover the pros and cons of each.

Ultra Planner

The Ultra Planner feels life is in control. They know what needs to be done and when every moment. As a positive that’s great organization. As a negative there’s no room for random glitches in the calendar or someone else’s.

Fly by the Seat of Your Pants

The Flyer doesn’t want to be structured with a plan, this is too restrictive. They want to feel the wind through their hair. The positive is great creativity and spontaneity. The negative is there’s no structure for completing tasks or projects.

The Irony

The more or less you plan, there’s potential for high cost. For the Ultra Planner there is a cost of stress because of failure to the plan, it’s too structured. There’s no flexibility or spontaneity. For the Flier, because there is so much flexibility, the assurance of any completion is unknown.

If you’re comfortable being a planner, flier or a little of both that’s fine. If chaos is in your life because of your choice? Re-examine where you are and find a fit that works for you and yours.
