We should not moor a ship with one anchor, or our life with one hope. – Epictetus
If a rope breaks on the only anchor, the ship goes adrift out of control… possibly lost or sunk by rocks. The same can be said for your life if you have no optional plans for a hopeful goal that disappears. Sports injuries end careers, investments go bust, companies lay-off employees or financing on business ventures disappear. Have backup plans?
