As some of you may know, I had a series of life lessons on another site. In that series, I wrote very non-linearly, posting lesson 3, then 7, then 18, and so on. My hope was to complete all of them in time to have a complete set of 33 for everyone to view. Why 33 and not 42? Because I like 33. And it’s one less than (rule) 34.
Anyway, I had the intention of doing that. But as with some plans, life conspires for greater adventures, and some things may be left aside to forge ahead to greater glory (or gainful employment in some cases).
Thus, let’s take a look at the first Lore Life Lesson, which in no way indicates its relative importance to the other Lore Life Lessons to come, as they are all equal. It’s just as a starting point, so some readers can take notes (I’m talking to all you left-brainers out there).

Yes — have a plan. And then another plan. And maybe another plan after that. But first and foremost, have a plan and stick to it with all that you have.
You can’t raid ICC or push back a Zerg if you’re rolling another Elezen. You’ve seen this in your MMO of choice, I’m sure. Some people want to do this, others want to do that, one is getting chicken, and all of you are in the same instance. Split focus creates fractured results. Just ask this guy (rated PG-13).
So whether it’s life or your favorite MMO, have a plan, stick to it, and if it fails or a better plan presents itself, adapt and overcome. Most of the time, you’ll find that a good plan is worth its weight in (virtual MMO) gold. So come on people… say it with me:
