Plan, be prepared but also be flexible.

I can’t understand when some people overdo the planning bit and as soon as a situation comes up they think of the worst possible outcome and keep stressing . I feel this just means putting yourself in agony. Also I am a die-hard positive thinker. It’s infact my survival tool.
