I usually try to have a plan for things I do, retirement included. But the plan rarely survives long once I start doing the thing. I call it revising the plan, but really there are so many changes because I always know so much more once I am immersed in the thing. Maybe I'm just a really bad planner, but I think the plan isn't bad, it's just as much background knowledge as could be collected before actual immersion.

The planning has been all about the financials, health insurance, etc. That has been years in the making. I have some general ideas about how I want to spend my time but need time first and foremost to decompress.
