There is no plan?

Diana in The Adventures of Johny Bunko says, "There is no plan." The author, Daniel Pink, is not saying "Don't make a plan." He's simply saying, "Don't count on all (or any) of your plans working out." Many students and young professionals have a hard time coming to terms with this quote, but if you think about it realistically it seems apparent. For example, do you think that 50 percent of the people who get married plan on getting divorced? No! But that's the average rate of failed marriages in the U.S. So, after thinking about "There is no plan" versus "Don't count on all your plans coming to fruition," do you have a different view of what your future holds? Are you willing to adjust your plans in order to make way for the future?
