A common trait I see among successful people is extreme focus on a single goal.

Successful people know what they want. They aren’t splitting focus, they’re going all in on getting to where they want to be. They have one goal in front of them and all of their energy is going into doing the work.

I don’t like to plan for failure. I’d rather put all of my energy into going forward than slow down and create a backup plan. If I encounter a problem, I’ll just face it head on.

Even if I fail, what I’m still left with is two hands and a willingness to work hard.

Matt has a different approach. He presents a case for making backup plans in this episode—and even backup up plans for your backup plans.

I think there’s room for both approaches. I also think you’re going to really enjoy this conversation on whether it’s profitable to spend time, energy, and resources preparing for things that might go wrong.
