IF PLAN "A" DOESN'T WORK, DO YOU HAVE AN ALTERNATIVE PLAN?

Many times we put so much effort into plans that we have for our lives that we forget to prepare for the inevitable. Life doesn't always go as planned, so it is very important to have a backup plan. In society today, we have many athletes that rely on their talent alone and when that fails them they have nothing to fall back on. For example, the NBA lockout is affecting many NBA players. Without money coming in as usual they have to rely on other sources and skills to make up the difference. I believe that education should always come before athletics. Your talent may get you in the door but if it fails you, you will need something else to keep you afloat. Many people go to college and expect to find a job in their field. Sometimes it just doesn't happen that way, this is when Plan B come into play. It is better to have an undesirable Plan B or C, than not to have a plan at all. You can never put all your energy into one activity. As the saying goes, "don't put all your eggs into one basket". Life goes a lot smoother when you plan accordingly.
