The quickest recipe to get disappointed is notching up our hope. Worrying too much about a plan to succeed only to see it crumble. Either all at once or gradually. Like a sand castle.
You shouldn’t plan. It’s not in your control. What’s in your control is to make a decision. And that decision is definitely not about building your castle in the air. It’ll get blown out.
But, what’s the alternative? Sit back and let it happen on its own? Perhaps.
I mean, let it happen without any worry? How is that not ‘too hopeful?’.
