Why Planning is important?

This email was forwarded to all my company staffs by one of my colleague from Sales and Marketing. This is a TRUE story from IIT Bombay, India -- Batch 1992. Felt amazing to their ending...Haha, it's telling us how important of Planning...

---------------this is just a divider--------------------

One Night 4 college students were playing till late night and could not study for the test which was scheduled for the next day.

In the morning they thought of a plan. They made themselves look as dirty with grease and dirt. They then went up to the Dean and said that they had gone out to a wedding last night and on their return the tire of their car burst and they had to push the car all the way back and that they were in no condition to appear for the test. So the Dean said they could have the re-test after 3 days. They thanked him and said they would be ready by that time.

On the third day they appeared before the Dean. The Dean said that as this was a Special Condition Test, all four were required to sit in separate classrooms for the test. They all agreed as they had prepared well in the last 3 days.

The Test consisted of 2 questions with a total of 100 Marks.

See Below for the Question Paper

Q.1. Name of the car? (2 MARKS)


Q.2. Which tire burst? (98 MARKS)

a) Front Left b) Front Right
c) Back Left d) Back Right

Crazy, right? The shortest question, also the hardest. Haha, it's quite interesting and meaningful. Now i really realized planning is very important, even though it's just a simply lie. Therefore, we must have a beautiful plan before we do anything, ok? =D
