The Plan

There is a plan and it has nothing to do with any of that spiritual "everything happens for a reason" nonsense because that is and never will be the case. Plans are made and plans are executed or there is no plan and you can just get the hell out of the way while others more ambitious and better prepared soak up the variance. There's only so much oxygen.

Not everyone can have a plan. Nothing happens for a reason unless you make the reason and act against that reason. Creativity is one-tenth natural ability ("gift"), six-tenths torturous suffering ("pain"), and three-tenths pure circumstance ("luck"). You have to plan.

I have a plan. I have a plan to execute. You can join the plan or get the hell out of the way. I want you but I don't need you.

I have had plans before and I will have plans again. I now have a brand new plan because the last half of 2008 has been, artistically, extraordinarily interesting and fulfilling (in a life filled with wildly interesting and fulfilling adventures). Trust me.

There are specific people who have pushed and shoved and nudged and urged and challenged and praised me to the point where I have to either have and execute this plan or die. Like Dick Cheney said, "we are turning a corner."

On January 1, 2009, we will be around that corner. Until then, let me clear the backlog:

There is a plan to execute.
