Law Twenty-Nine: Plan All the Way to the End


The end is very important, where a given action is involved. A person, therefore, needs to plan to the end properly (Greene 236). It is also normally essential to identify some of the obstacles that may be experienced along the way and as well, outline the possible consequences that may accrue from the activity. Through the process of planning, a person has the chance to defeat some of the obstacles faced accordingly (Greene 237). An example is provided in 1510 of Balboa, a Spanish who set out on an expedition to the Pacific, with poor planning. Although he was bold, he left the islands of Hispaniola identified, full of gold and other people took over.
