Is it necessary to have a plan B while considering a careerWith so many career options to choose from, it definitely becomes a hassle for the students to pick one. I remember struggling to choose the subject I should pursue from my list of favourites. But now with such cutthroat competition, I feel it must be so hard for these kids to choose a career option that would definitely be a success, not only from the career prospect but also whether it would actually be a good option for the student?
Recently, I saw a web series depicting the struggle of a UPSC aspirant, where the person admits to not having a plan B and declares that plan B are for losers who are not passionate about their single goal. But after achieving his goal, he also realizes that plan B is not for losers only but is just to maintain a balance for one's future.
I sometimes actually feel perplexed as to what should be the perfect strategy to overcome your future fears? Does plan B actually make a difference in your way of thinking? Or does that act as a pillow in case you fall? Is it possible that plan B can surpass one's dedication for plan A, as they would always have an option to lean on, sometimes even without trying?
Also, I feel the students, who still haven't been able to decide on a Plan B, are losing somewhere from those already having other plans on their list. Or is it that they are confident enough to have a single plan and a zeal to achieve it?
Please share your views as to whether plan B is really worth it?
