Some people suggest you have a backup plan. Something to fall back on, just in case your first option doesn’t work out. This is bad advice, shared with you by people who never believed in (or even had) their plan A enough to cut off all other options.  

What’s worse than this bad advice is that is works on people: You start thinking of plans B & C, you know, just in case plan A doesn’t work. Well how do you think plan A feels about this just in case planning? How do you think your subconscious mind feels when you start making in-case-of-failure plans ahead of taking action? Could you ever achieve anything with that mindset?

If you have, let me know.

Today’s show shares how you need to cut off plan Bs and go all-in on plan A. yeah, it’s daunting. It’s hard. It’s a one-in-a-million shot!

And that’s exactly why it’s worth it.

  1. This has actually come at the right time and has given me clarity. Safety nets are good but they take up time, that’s time you could be spending on getting your plan to work. You can’t also take bold steps as in the back of your mind you’re thinking it’s ok if it doesn’t work I can go back. When you have no choice, you have to make it work.

    I’ve done both before, I quit my job to focus on an idea I wanted to develop. I’ve also built a business with a safety net, with the safety net I was lazier and didn’t push as hard so it was halfhearted. Don’t regret doing it but would’ve been bigger if I’d fully committed to it. It’s interesting as I was always told to have a plan B, and alot of times I’ve had plans for my plans.

    This and reading 33 strategies of war, where he talks about death ground, making it impossible to go back. How we should have the idea of Death with us at all times to focus our energies and push harder, roll the dice as it could be the last thing we do.

    It’s interesting as Death is something natural but it’s also an abstract concept and, for the most part, kept at arms length, yet it can happen in a single moment and you have no idea when that moment will be. Nothing to lose, everything to gain.

    Always appreciate your content Dre. Always provides value.

    • Great insights Colin. We always appreciate your feedback!
