Maybe some times you fail other's plan too unknowingly to you and you feel bad about it but there is nothing you can do.
I personally have been hurt by Failed plans and I know how it feels to be a victim but truly I'll tell you its been long since I had experienced such "Failed plans" and I want your case to be like that too. I can see you are interested you want to know what made that possible. Don't worry, this blog post is just for you follow on as we go ahead with solutions to this heart breaking Issue.
1. Know who you are planning with.
You made plans with a friend to go out for shopping and you've done all preparations necessary. You know your friend is a busy type and could be called at any time to work or some contracts or business stuff. Unluckily that day comes and he tells you;
"Bro I got a call from boss today I can't make it"
You planned with the wrong person.

2. Make plans at less active days or after working hours
Yeah he may he busy but may not be busy at all times definitely he got some time aside to rest like the weekends so fixing your planed activity on weekends could help. What if he works during the weekends too? Then you can go out after working hours.

Don't plan some thing you know doesn't exist and can't exist in fact its crazy to do such. Just make plans you know will be of interest to you and your companies. Some thing that could benefit you all, it makes them to have more interest since they leave what they are doing and go ahead with the plan just to derive the benefit.
5. Be focused
I know life isn't that easy there are a lot of distractions every where that we tend to forget our plans but when we know we have planned something we want to throw off some duties to fulfil that plan especially when it's getting closer to the day. Don't make too much promises that link to that day of your plan just be focused.
6. Get in touch with your companies.
Ask them questions like;
'Can you still make it?' 'Are you sure you'll be free that day?' Do this 2 days to the D-day to help you know if you are replacing any one, it helps a lot.
