We’ll make a plan – let’s call that plan A – but then we’ll have plan B and C – just in case. We’re pros at anticipating problems which is why we have backup plans.  This could include a rainy-day alternative for an outdoor event or extra supplies in case of unexpected guests. These are things that you don’t have to worry about.
