About Planning: Why plan? Who should plan? etc. 

Predict! When the word 'plan' [as in 'strategic plan'] annoys people, don't argue it or fight it. Choose to use the word 'predict'.

We are all creatures of habit. While we always face many different routes, sometimes we just cannot look ahead or see them. We become victims of our situations, stalled in the present, stalled in the problem.

Skills, goals and plans will always be required. 

Without these basics, work is demoralizing and frustrating.

Without these basics, unless they have tremendous will, people give up their dreams and hope.

We struggle when we don't use our Talents...and many of us accept that struggling lot in life.

Yet, few of us struggle to use up our Talents.

Isn't that unfortunate!

'Hope is not a Strategy', an interesting business book by Rick Page.

"Hope is an essential ingredient of leadership." a Deepak Chopra quote from his book, 'The Soul of Leadership'

Both are accurate statements.
