Yes or no: everyone should have a backup plan.
No. If you have an actual plan B you have already given up on plan A.
Chasing after a dream means leaving your comfort zone and jump into the unknown, and that’s really scary but also very rewarding. But keeping a backup plan is staying put ring in the mindst of your comfort zone.
This only recently dawned upon me. I used to be all for plans and backup plan and backup backup plans. Knowing exactly what I was gonna do the next 10 years of my life. But planing everything will stop you from seeing all the opportunities life hands you.
If you, like me, can’t let completely go of the planing, give yourself a time limit on plan A. Lets say you like me want to study at an art school, then you give yourself say 2 years to get in. If you don’t get accepted to any art schools within those 2 years, you come up with a new plan.
