We just talked about how there's
six transitions nowadays in a modern adult life.
And at each of those transitions,
it's good to have a moment where you, sort of, sit back
and you think, hey, what's coming next?
And so we've designed this thing we call an Odyssey Plan, which
is really a little bit of a misnomer
because we don't believe so much in planning,
but we believe a lot in having ideas, ideation.
So what an Odyssey Plan is a, sort of,
a brainstorm about how might my life
work going forward maybe five years or 10 years
and coming up with all of the elements that would make
that life rich and fulfilling.
And it's important to do it, because if you
plan for nothing, you're going to get nothing.
And if you aim at nothing, you're
going to hit nothing, right.
So having at least some kind of an ideation about what
would it be like if my life worked on this particular plan
and what would happen with me, my family, my friends,
and my career, it's a really good way to just take a moment
and, sort of, visualize how would my life be
at this transition point?
And we talked about the different transitions,
so certainly when you leave college
there's a big transition.
There's a transition in your 20s and 30s
when you've had your first job and maybe you
want to pivot and try something new.
There's a transition in your 50s and 60s
when you're thinking about moving to an encore
career or a new career.
And at each of those points, it's
great to have a tool like the Odyssey plan
to figure out, hey, what might be next.
It's not-- it's not a specific A equals
B equals C, kind of, a plan.
It's more of a brainstorm on how might my life unfold
if these things were true?
So there's an old expression, I think
it comes from Dwight Eisenhower who was a general
and then he became the President of the United States
just before Kennedy, and he was famous for saying,
"planning is everything, but the plan is nothing."
And what he meant was getting ready and planning and thinking
about all the possibilities, kind of,
gets you set up for the next stage.
But there's also another military expression
that no plan of battle survives first contact with the enemy,
right.
So no matter whatever you planned, when you actually
get into the field and you get it going,
you've got to be ready for anything.
We reframe that in the life design class,
because we aren't military as no plan for your life
survives first contact with reality because stuff happens,
right.
But having a plan, sort of, makes
you feel like you are ready to engage,
and so that's what we take from that quote.
