I'm big on having a Plan B and even Plan C regarding as many situations as I can. It has nothing to do with not being committed to Plan A, but I just like to be prepared. Some aspects in your life demand a Plan B, others not so much, but better safe than sorry, no?
So far I've been doing good except today, where a previously held commitment fell apart due to my inability to plan ahead enough for something unexpected. It is not my place nor intention to talk about the specifics of this situation, I just wanted to mention it and maybe this post can serve as a reminder to people (and myself) to be mindful of your surroundings and how you go about things. I know this sounds super vague and I should probably tie it in with something more animation specific (plan out your shots, be ready for unpredictable client notes, etc.), but for now let's keep it short.
