5 Times In Life When It’s Good To Have A Backup Plan

Contrary to what many professional charlatans have said, there’s nothing wrong with having a backup plan. A semi-comfy safety net that one can confidently fall into if their current reality decides to move mad and go in a direction they didn’t see coming.

To further prove our point, here are examples of five times in life when it’s good to have a backup plan.

1) When writing an exam:

To avoid stories that touch, go with backup pens, pencils, or any other thing you know would mess up your entire flow if it suddenly stopped working or vanished.

2) When driving:

Would you really go on a long drive without a spare tyre? No, you wouldn’t. Because if you did, no one would feel sorry for when one of your tyres inexplicably explodes, leaving you stranded in the middle of nowhere to be eaten by the Jeepers Creepers demon (à la the entire cast of the second movie).

3) When adulting:

Adulting is…a lot. And sometimes, it feels like you can’t catch a break. That’s normal. However, the one thing you can’t forget while life throws challenges at you is to save. Putting aside a part of your income (whenever it’s paid) into a separate account will come in handy when life decides to hit you with a surprise monetary emergency.

4) When it comes to Nigeria’s electricity:

It’s a tale as old as time. There’s no greater disappointment than the one that comes with relying on PHCN’s hella erratic supply to do literally anything. If you don’t have a way to generate power (generator or inverter), you’re screwed.

5) When it comes to protecting your loved ones:

Finding ways to provide them with the best you can when you’re around…and when you’re no longer around. How do you provide for them when you’re no longer around?

That’s where Life Insurance comes in.

When you get life insurance, you get peace of mind because it is the ultimate backup for you and your loved ones. It goes a long way because when you’re old, you’ll have the funds to have other people manage stuff for you. It’s super important to get life insurance now, irrespective of how old you are, so that you’ll have a safety net and be prepared for anything that might happen.
