Confusion and disorganization often makes it hard to get motivated. When we don’t know what’s coming next, it’s hard to move from step to the next without getting lost.
Instead, we have to follow an entirely ad hoc path. At each point in time, we must make new decisions about what we should be doing; and if we haven’t thought it out in advance, there’s a good chance these will be bad decisions.
This is why it is important to map out a detailed plan before you attempt to achieve some goal. As soon as you have a break in your schedule, you can look at the plan to find out what you should do next. This will prevent you from sitting around for long periods of time without any work to occupy you.
Another benefit of having a detailed plan in advance is that it will emerge from long-term thinking and considerations. This is much more likely to lead you in the right direction than a plan that emerges from minute-to-minute considerations without focusing on where you should be at the end of the day.
