When you set out on a certain course of action or intent, how often do you consider a Plan B? Or even a Plan C or D? How extensive are the contingency plans? When Plan D proves unsuccessful, what then? Give up. Design a Plan E. Revisit plans A through D to see if they’ll work in the next round.
Tell me what happens when you get to Plan Y. Not quite the final straw – Plan Z is on deck. What now?
At this point, they’re not contingency plans. They’re options. And since I believe there are more options and choices than there are letters in any alphabet, there’s always a chance.
