I Took Your Little Plan And Turned It On Itself

Ledger’s Joker said,

I just did what I do best. I took your little plan and turned it on itself. Look what I did to this city with a few drums of gas and a couple of bullets … hmmm? You kn’ wha’ … you know what I noticed? Nobody panics when things go “according to plan.” Even if the plan is horrifying! If, tomorrow, I tell the press that, like, a gang-banger would get shot, or a truck load of soldiers will be blowing up, nobody panics, because it’s all “part of the plan.” But when I say that one little old mayor will die … well then EVERYONE LOSES THEIR MINDS!

If you don’t design your own life plan, chances are you’ll fall into someone else’s plan. And guess what they have planned for you? Not much.

This is the connection I’ve made …

Har-old, the only plan you will EVER need in life is the plan they have for you. The not much plan. And the little they do have planned for you is in their favor and to their advantage. So, make them panic by showing them things don’t always go “according to plan.” Your plan is their plan turned on itself. This is how you consolidate everyone’s plan for you, by simply turning it on itself, doing the exact opposite of what is expected. You need not waste anymore time making your own plans; people have already designed your life plans. Therefore, by not having a plan, you have a plan … every plan.

How do you find out the plans others have for you? Discovering where they resist you. The “change.” They expect for you to force yourself on them; it’s all “part of the plan.” Remember: Children and other willful people enjoy doing the opposite of what you tell them. This is why you always advocate the opposite of what you really want.

Once you discover what is “according to plan,” what makes one lose their mind and where people resist you, you will be at genius level planning.

Futuristically yours,

  1. i always say, “expectations make me tired…” & really all people have is expectations of one another, regardless of what the other person wants to do. so i agree with you completely! everyone’s got something planned for you & the best way of making this life your own is shaking up the foundation of that plan and “turn it on itself.”
    i notice, too, that people are shocked when other people don’t act or react as according to their “plan” as they have it in their mind. and when you do things opposite of what’s expected you create a little conflict w/i that other person. i think when you do it enough, that person, in turn, realizes that they can’t have expectations of you anymore. then it all becomes a game of, “what will she/he do next?”
    no matter what people say there is nothing interesting in the expected and always excitement in the chaos 🙂


    1. I’m smiling from ear to ear at your last line. “No matter what people say there is nothing interesting in the expected and always excitement in chaos.”


  2. lol… wonder where Har+new is? 🙂 Very clever use of juxtaposition BTW.

    P.S. In chemistry, the forward reaction becomes the backward reaction once all reactants are used up. So even though the universe leans toward order, it eventually leans toward chaos too. Thermodynamics might tell you otherwise but scientists are discovering that they are both desirable.

    In essence… I’m digging your chaotic mind. Great post!


    1. Haha! I did read on your About page you were an aspiring scientist. Appreciate the chemistry lesson.

      I love chaos.I’m introducing a little anarchy. Time to upset the established order.
