Will’s 10th birthday party is today. He woke up this morning looked outside at the rain and mentioned halfheartedly that they’ll have to go with plan B.
Plan A is outdoor games. B is indoor.
I told him that if he makes plan B just as awesome and exciting as plan A then it’s a win/win.
Sometimes God gives me the best things to say.
I bet He’d like to see me practice them.
But it’s true. First, have a plan. So many people don’t. Then have a backup. And make the fallback as desirable as plan A.
So you may shoot for the stars and miss, but you could land on the moon. And with your next attempt at the stars you’ll have a much closer launching point.
That’s better than going nowhere and complaining about the rain.
