Honestly never thought of the planning aspect. I drive a lot for work and I have never turned on the radio in my car, in fact i don't even know if it works, I guess I do all my planning in my head. Seems to have served me pretty well although the 6 mo.
of chemo has caused some short term memory laps but even that seems to be improving.

I designed and built my own home 7 years ago. I bought the property in the late fall and had to tear down the original house so I hired an Amish friend to frame the new house so I could get it under roof before the snow fell and then I finished it from there. Each evening after dinner I would sketch out the design plans on graph paper and drop them off to the framers each morning. It took me 5 years of nites and weekends.

A little out of the box for rural Indiana corn country but it didn't turn out not too bad for an Old Guy with no plan.



For a backward old guy that took his Statics final with a slide rule and the most advanced software I've ever used was the first version of Excel I've managed to get along ok.

I have been a Production Manager, Product Manager, Project Manager, and Program Manager. I am presently the VP of Business Development of a small company my stepson and I started seven years ago. We have grown the business from 22K the first year to to 11.2 Million last year. I still use my original cell phone with voice mail only and I don't text, But I get by.
