I’ve never been the best at dealing with unexpected changes to the plan. I like to know what I’m doing, I like to know where I need to be and at what time. It means, from time to time, I find myself growing frustrated in those moments where unexpected disruptions crop up and delay me or completely alter my carefully constructed plans.
