…and Roy’s Law, from which it is derived
Really, it’s very simple.
Roy’s Rule is this: if any change to your plan makes that plan more complicated, DON’T DO IT!
Why? Because Roy’s Law states that:
Any change you make to a plan that complicates that plan means you move FURTHER AWAY from the intended end result instead of closer to it.
Change is fine, but only if that change moves you closer to the result you’re aiming for. Any other change you make is counter-productive, EVEN IF IT SEEMS LIKELY TO IMPROVE THE END RESULT.
Because in my experience the end result of a continually changing plan is that you never reach your end result.
I’d love to hear your thoughts on this!
