For years, I struggled with writing business plans. How can you write all that 
stuff unless you have already done it? 

A scientist friend told me that research grants require so much data that he 
does the experiments first and then applies for the grant. Since the funded 
grant is already done, things always come out as they are projected making 
future funding easier.

I finally found the answer in Paul Hawken's Growing a Business, it isn't the 
plan, it's the process.
