Spend more time planning life

“Many people spend more time planning a two-week vacation than they do planning their life.”

I’ve heard that quote attributed to Zig Ziggler. I’ve also seen Michael Hyatt say it.

Either way, I’ve been revisiting it lately and kind of rephrasing it to make it more personal.

I spend more time planning a week at work than a month at home.

Each Monday, I’m in a two-hour planning meet for the coming week at work. I don’t have anything similar set aside for our months as a household. Over the course of a month, there’s no two-hour block set aside to plan. I might spend some time planning, maybe even two hours total if I added it all together, but it’s not as dedicated as it is at work. It’s not as scheduled.
