Life is what happens to you while you’re busy making other plans. – John Lennon
We have all been there. We plan, scheme, triple check and we still get fooled by an unexpected plot twist. Life happens when our attention lies elsewhere. So how does someone avoid this predicament? Keep your eyes open and know that things will change. If you expect that change will happen, it is less of a surprise when it does. Recognising what is happening instead of what you want to happen is also vital. Take care to not assume, pay attention and know that anything is possible.
