We must be willing to get rid of the life we’ve planned, so as to have the life that is waiting for us.

Or to paraphrase. Life is what happens when you're making other plans.

Hmmm... I'll see your quote and raise it one:

“no battle plan ever survives the first encounter with the enemy”

(I do like yours a lot, too.)

I like that! :)

It's a good day for that quote.

[But it also negates the concept of "if you don't like the way something is, don't complain about it, just go out and change it" - - like there's no free-will and therefore no motivation. Maybe.]

No it doesn't. The two things are not mutually exclusive by any means.

I guess I look at it more as "don't grow so attached to your vision of how the future ought to be that you miss the great opportunities in your path." You still need to act meaningfully, just should not be single-minded.

That is exactly how I read it.
