The downside of schedules and plans

Putting yourself on a schedule can be a good way to make sure you actually do what you plan to, but something I’m starting to realize recently is that getting too attached to a plan can lead to not wanting to do things out of order, and become a barrier to getting anything important done when the next step is a big or time-consuming one.

Like how right now I should be working on a novel or story, but the thing I want to do “next” is a large complicated change that I’d like to do all at once, so I’m posting this instead.
