Planning is important. It set things in motion.
It tells your brain "this is what I need to accomplish."
What I have learned about planning though is that plans rarely go as planned.
If you need to get to Toronto from Ottawa, it does not matter how you get there as long as you get there.
But you will never get there if you don't start planning.
Detours may happen. Traffic may slow you down. The weather may affect your trip. Your kids may need to stop 6 times for bathroom breaks. Many things may happen but you will never be able to predict everything.
The key is to be flexible but focused.
Flexible enough to adapt when required.
Focused enough to make sure you are still heading in the right direction.
