What is your plan B?

SITUATION:
My entire work is dependent on my iMac.

UNEXPECTED PROBLEM:
One day my iMac crashed and I was unable to do any work.

PLAN B:
I repaired my iMac, I have a Mac Book Pro & Another Laptop as a backup

************

SITUATION:
My entire work online is on my website

UNEXPECTED PROBLEM:
One day someone hacked into my website and destroyed it

PLAN B:
Since past 5 years, I have 2 places where all my online content is now saved with hourly backups

************

SITUATION:
I used to post all my 12 hours of content on Quora to attract new clients to my brand

UNEXPECTED PROBLEM:
One day Quora banned me for a week for a silly violation & I was unable to do any work.

PLAN B:
Now I spread my content on youtube, Medium, my website & Blogger dot com

************

SITUATION:
I kept all my money in a bank account.

UNEXPECTED PROBLEM:
I lost my wallet on a weekend & since the bank was also closed, I was stuck with no money for 48 hours

PLAN B:
I have my money spread out in 3 places with an additional 2 cards just in case

************

SITUATION:
My wife is completely dependent on me as I am the bread earner of the house

UNEXPECTED PROBLEM:
I went for my Bariatric Surgery & my wife had no idea how to manage things

PLAN B:
My wife has all the instructions & training what to do in case I die just now

Here are my questions to you:

  • What is the most important thing you are depending on right now?
  • What would happen if what you were dependent upon crashed right now?
  • What is your Plan B?
