The good part of planning is the process itself: To sit down and make some calculations, to fantazise about the outcome of one's plans and to sink deep into a nice daydream of how it will be, that's the peak of planning.
Then there's the anti-peak which sometimes is the unexpected outcome of that planning. Everything is planned, everything seems to be covered, the insurances have been bought so to speak. No doubt about it: This is a well planned enterprise - that is except for that freak accident robbing one of it all. "God's finger" points at one who thought that he/she was totally safe from Fate and he/she discovers that Fate is for everyone. Sometimes Fate brings gifts, sometimes "she" robs one of these same gifts.
I know of one who has worked very hard all his life, who is now the father of two adult children, has a good job, etc., etc.. Still also such a person might be stricken down and he was, by illness. It's pathetic that a grown man is looking forward to nothing else but his own demise and I sure hope he is joking even though that subject is in bad taste in these circumstances.

The same happened to another one of my friends who is a very active and self-assertive woman in a high position. Then she had an accident on a staircase and now everything looks quite different. Until this accident she thought she was on top of the world, now she knows that that position is taken by Fate. Instead of cursing Fate she has sunk into a teary depression, also because she feels this accident to be an impossibility that happened although she was sure it never could happen to her. Curses or tears don't lead anywhere and I hope that both of them shall do what's needed in the situation: Grow up and realize that this is part of the package called life. I too prefer when it's full of success or at least not being too burdensome, but I know from experience that that's not always the case. It's annoying to meet a long string of problems, but it's part of the deal so I hope they can change their attitude and live a good life with or without these illnesses that disrupt their false assumptions that somehow they are born to be the favourites of Lady Luck.
