When To Abandon Plans

An important skill to develop for success is a keen sense of when to abandon plans. Boom Boom might have chosen a moment too late.

Like all good dreamers, Landon is a master at devising plans to create “fun” around Chez Herd by the Sea. Unfortunately, execution sometimes fails him.

Abandon plans! Abandon plans!
Abandon plans! Abandon plans!

And what could possibly have gone wrong in his plan to launch a sneak attack on his big brother, Frankie Suave? Maybe, just maybe, Frankie might have anticipated it.

Retreat! Retreat!
Retreat! Retreat!

Don’t worry, our hero has learned his lesson, right? Uh, Boom Boom?

Maybe he won't hear me coming this time

    Oh Boom Boom-you just never give up-do you?? It will take a LOT of planning to launch a sneak attach on your brother Frankie Suave AND he won’t know you are coming!
