Casual Cool: Planning

There was once a time when it was widely believed there was nothing less casual than planning in your life. Going with the flow and couch surfing through your weekend hoping to catch the epic wave of good times seemed to be the right thing to do. But as a great casual man once said, "Times, they are a changing".

It has recently come to my attention that planning in many aspects of life greatly increases your casual libido. Especially when those plans involve oceans, lakes, rivers, streams, boats, floats, ice cream cones, turtle rides, sack lunches, intermediate snacking, and good friends. Live and love and plan on it. There's not much else to it.

Planning expedites your obligatory work load, leading to enjoyable productive days, and making for more efficient use of leisure time (guilt free i might add). Planning efficient use of your time now simultaneously enhances the chance of casual times later. It's pretty much a guarantee of goodness. Plans make things happen. Good things.

All plans are subject to change including late departures and arrivals as well as full fledged cancellations. Change of plans are always acceptable and no party should be held accountable for such. Accountability is not casual in this case nor are the grudges that persist following a hold of accountability towards any singular party or parties. To plan on not planning nullifies the planning process and all plans are therefor void. Do, however, plan on making other plans if it be that the original plan, by nature of its sloppy planning, fails to materialize into a real plan. Do not intentionally make plans that are not meant to be fulfilled, for these plans are not really plans and do not fall withing the qualifications of successful planning. What was once a plan, is not always a plan and may never be a plan until planned again. All plans are eligible for re-planning. Plans are not to be confused with planes, though plans on planes and any plans including flight are good plans but should be made well in advance. Plans exists in plants, who follow natures plan, which happens to be the best plan of all. I plan you plan, we all plan for plans. After all, we do live on a planet, but we are not sure it was planned that way.
