Planning - Why Bother?
A prudent captain would study his maps and charts before setting sail on a voyage to a known destination.
During the voyage, he will check his position constantly to ensure that he is not off course and will take corrective action if he encounters a storm.
Running a business is like sailing a ship: the destination is money and the measurement is how well you are doing in terms of profit and cash-flow compared to plan.
Unless this information is available then corrective action cannot be taken to avoid hitting the rocks!
