Many people "freak out" because they have not created the perfect plan to reach their goals or excel in their career, "says Mandel, but what you need even more than is the willingness to move on.
Our planning culture too much does not contribute to success, says Mandel. Often people think about and get paralyzed in analysis instead of taking action. "You look in mind what is successful and you're planning endgame," he says, but you can not always predict the outcome.
So, says Mandel, "be a bit more myopic and put one foot in front of another … Put your right foot forward, put your left foot forward and see and see, you are ten steps ahead.
"But you can not sit here and go," I want to be 10 steps ahead, here's how to get 10 steps ahead, I'll make notes on the reasons to be 10 steps ahead … the ways you can take steps shoes I can wear …. "You just can not do it. The planning does not."
