Over- versus Under-Planning

My wife and I have been arguing recently about my family’s tendancy to over-plan.  The Trick way does tend to have plans with lots of contingencies, which perhaps a reason operations research appeals to me.  The Weyers (my wife Ilona’s surname) approach is a little more … take it as things come.

The Think-OR blog has a wonderful OR joke that pretty well summarizes how us over-planners work.  I think it is instructive that both Ilona and I think that the story vindicates our chosen position.
