God, I’ve waited years to be able to type that in a post.

Which brings me to Yoda.

The bloody know-it-all.

I’ve written in the past about planners who aspire to be like our green friend.

But they tend to forget 3 major things.

1. Yoda isn’t an arrogant dick.

2. Yoda isn’t always right, as this clip proves.

3. Yoda is literally, a fucking muppet.

So stop trying to be someone else and find your own voice.

God, all that just so I could use that headline for this post.

Why have you taken years to write this post? May 4 happens every year. And the post is as bad as the posts you write on Jan, Feb, Mar etc 4.

Comment by Bazza

That was my first reaction. May 4th is an annual event, why have you waited years?

Comment by George

🤯

Comment by Pete

That is a very good point. What the hell was I thinking. Oh I know, I wasn’t thinking at all.

Comment by Rob

Fool.

Comment by Bazza

You just wanted an excuse to show the Yoda blooper didn’t you Robert?

Comment by George

Definitely.

Comment by Pete

To be fair to Robert, his points about “Yoda planners” are correct.

Comment by George

True. But he has been saying that for as long as I‘be known him.

“Yoda statement?”

None of this is May 4th worthy. Sorry Rob.

Comment by Pete

I dreaded the idea of getting the yoda statement insult.

Comment by Bazza

It only happened to me once and I talked him round but it scarred me for life.

Comment by Pete

Oh yes. The ultimate planner insult. But it was highly effective in ensuring briefs made sense.

Comment by George

I thought you came up with that George?

Comment by Rob

Though I accept I probably used it the most. Hahaha.

Comment by Rob

That went well.

Comment by John

Yep. As usual.

Comment by Rob

I think they overlooked the skill with which you illustrated your point that a yoda-like obsession with a clever headline can ultimately diminish the whole work.

Comment by John

but planners are fucking muppets.

Comment by andy@cynic

and you all are fucking ugly.

Comment by andy@cynic

You’ve spelt fourth wrongly.
So now you’re as bad as spelling at math.

Comment by DH

Like all planners, he was obviously referring to the future. Well, like all planners who can’t spell do.

Comment by John

Damnit.

Comment by Rob

I just had someone on LinkedIn write to tell me I’d spelt it wrong. And English wasn’t even their native language. Great. Just great.

Comment by Rob

That’s made my day.
