Turn Your Plan for Change into an Experiment for Improved Results

A plan is desirable to advance from setting a vision to putting things in motion, but if we are not careful the plan can take on a life of its own and make us rigid, with expectations of perfection and pretending to know what we don’t know.  This is particularly worrisome when our desired outcome involves achieving stretch goals. Shifting from the bounded frame of a plan to a more flexible frame of experimenting levels expectations and guides our ability to maintain a level of curiosity and try different approaches “in the moment.”  Some of our best work surfaces while performing live as opposed to rehearsing.
