Wow, a really excellent article!  Thanks for taking the time to write it.

Just one remark: not having (or following) a plan is not necessarily
bad by itself.  Collecting small positional advances here and there,
trying to maximize their sum, *is* one of the common plans, when
direct tactics are not available.  Even switching between several
possible plans can be advantageous, when my opponent is forced to
choose a defence, while I still not committed to an attack.

Thanks again!
