“He who every morning plans the transactions of the day and follows out that plan carries a thread that will guide him through the labyrinth of the most busy life. The orderly arrangement of his time is a like a ray of life which darts itself through all his occupations. But where no plan is laid, where the disposal of time is surrendered merely to the chance of incident, chaos will soon reign.”
Interestingly…I used to live near Victor Hugo’s house near Le Havre; Wikipedia doesn’t mention it, but I know it’s there.

interesting and definately refreshing
I’m not sure that I agree with all of Victor Hugo’s quote…..
“But where no plan is laid, where the disposal of time is surrendered merely to the chance of incident, chaos will soon reign.”
I believe there is no such thing as coincidence and that certain meetings/incidents will take us to a better place; a place to learn life’s lessons. So, sometimes sitting back does not bring chaos!
I often ask; always remember to say thank you……and trust the guidance that I am given.
We all have Guardian Angels.
What you ask for can come in to your lives.
Amen! Just yesterday I wrote a short post on Blogger about “Having a Routine.” It’s so important to have a plan for the day, week – however you function best. A daily “to do” list or a routine is essential in ensuring all your goals are accomplished!!!
Very good points! A lot of good things happen by not being too rigid in your plans; you need to know when to let Providence take you in another direction. However, I do know I get more done when I stick to the plan. 🙂
Personally, if I try to plan out my day, I try to plan it to the smallest detail and get extremely upset when something goes awry, so I make a general outline of things I’m going to try to do the next day. I find that I don’t get frustrated when I’m not able to follow the outline.
