so when it comes to life, do you plan ahead?

do you live for the moment?. the day?. the week?

tell me how you plan (or don't plan) ahead.

i was always braught up to live for the day- no one knows what happens tomorrow, so why make plans if you don't know what tomorrow will bring

as i got older though, i started to take it more seriously and plan minit by minit, or hour by hour.

i try not to plan ahead anymore than 1 day.

how do you deal with planning

I plan ridiculous things, like holidays I will never go on, and children I will never have.

But when it comes to planning what I need to buy in the shops, or what to make for tea, I just wing it.

I over plan absolutely everything! Like I'll plan out my day to such a ridiculously fast paced, strict schedule, that I just end up stressing myself out and doing next to none of it laugh.gif I'm trying to work on it laugh.gif

I mostly like to plan right down to the exact time of where I'll be going somewhere. I just get majorly stressed when it comes to bad organisation and am a very punctual person, so knowing what I'll be doing saves a lot of hassle. My dad has definitely instilled this trait in me. laugh.gif This is usually for serious things though. Like, it's been stressing me out that a few people I need to meet up with for photography or interviewing purposes have been so slow with responding. Having plans when I know an important deadline is coming up like that example is where I like to be organised. However, if it's like not knowing where I'll be going to dinner that night with a friend or something (and we decide like half an hour before) then that's fine. Spontaneity can be good for fun things. I just like to be organised down to a T otherwise for more serious things, like scheduling interviews as mentioned or leaving with a bit of time to spare when travelling so I don't end up arriving late.

I plan most things I do (or don't do, in some cases heehee.gif) but sometimes I think I overplan and that ends up with me not enjoying something as much as I would had I done it upon my own behalf, if that makes sense.

And most of the time I plan things that I end up not doing, like I've planned as of now that for the whole of tomorrow morning I'll clean out my room and redecorate it - I'll tell you if that happens or not but something tells me it won't. I'm kind of up in the air about that right now.

I usually have a rough idea of when things are happening and what I have to do to prepare for them, but sometimes I just let fate choose my path. I cannot stand being late though, I am ALWAYS early.

This is such a good quality I feel. My Uni friends say I am THAT sensible friend that keeps them out of trouble. 'Cause I usually arrive a bit early and ring them as we usually chat a bit before going to lectures, and half the time my phone call has woken them up! laugh.gif MessT

Exact same here! Out of the 10 of us who chat at Uni, it is always me and one other person who bother showing up laugh.gif
In terms of going out with friends I will always be ready to go at least 10 mins before I am getting picked up or leaving to meet them. I can't help it

i don't bother about timing, though i think i'd make a good punctual person (mainly because i stick to a certain rooteen)

example: i never watch emmerdale in the evening, always the afternoon repeat on ITV2.

so i always know it starts at 10 past 12 (in most cases) and i'm usually tuned in at least 10 minits before

i question if i was a minit late, would i watch it.

probably not...

I overplan everything and try to arrange most things months in advance! (And everything crumbles about 2 days before the event kink.gif)

Despite being so good at planning things early (when I'm bothered), I'm always the one known for being late to everything as I always somehow end up being really late laugh.gif

It depends on what it is and the situation. Especially when there's a good chance things could change that affects plans.

I'm almost 3 years into a 5 year life plan. Otherwise i'm fairly useless at planning and spend most of my life running late.

I am quite a compulsive planner, I really don't do well in spontaneous social situations or planning off the bat, I guess being the 'J' personality type contributes to this, interestingly I've noticed, I do tend to get more spontaneous when I've been doing something a while, I guess when I'm familiar with something it makes me relax more.

YES. Though I'm weird in that big things, like job, money etc I don't plan all that much because so many of the factors are beyond my control. Anything small though, like going on holiday, and I plan it to the finest detail. I'm not a fan of spontaneity at all, if actively infuriates me, so I do like to plan as much as possible.

Currently I'm looking at how much things I'll need for my future home/apartment cost when I've still got a couple of years before University, so yes, I'd say I plan ahead.

In general though, I can also be a bit spontaneous when I buy things (this doesn't mean I buy things I regret later on, but sometimes I buy things I hadn't set out to buy.

I'm not sure I can give a straight answer. I'm exceptionally good at planning when I put my mind to it, I'm punctual and I take great delight in organising things I enjoy as much as possible. But there comes a limit and sometime I just let go and see where some spontaneity or last-minute planning takes me.

Like deciding my future from one year to the next for example. biggrin.gif

Oh I DO love it when someone else refers to Myers-Briggs on here heehee.gif I'm kinda slightly jealous of your type (INFJ, right?) because I'm INFP, so a bit similar, but a Perceiving type rather than Judging, meaning I'm not that great at planning, really... (and it also means I'm ridiculously non-judgmental lmao)

I've always had such a hard time planning big things for my future and yes, I do think my personality type has something to do with it. It has just always seemed to me that other people are somehow naturally better at that. I can plan what I'm going to do for the day, things like that. If I feel like it. In most cases, I'm able to manage in terms of sticking to the plan, like if I tell myself "I'm going to do this today", then chances are I will do it. However, most days I do just let things flow and I often don't really have plans. I don't really plan out everything I'm going to do when I go on holidays and such and am definitely getting better at spontaneity.

Yes I do plan ahead. I need time to mentally prepare for things so spontaneous plans are best avoided in most cases, though I'm making an effort to change that. Tried to make last-minute plans tonight and they didn't work out so I stayed home, but in the past I would just sit at home without even trying to reach out to anyone, so it's progress. But I much prefer planning a few days in advance so I can go through the week with something to look forward to!
