Dear Son, trust is everything. Rare. Priceless really. You must extend it if you wish to receive it – beware that you may not get it in return. Just a fact of life.
Lets assume you work for an organization under current usual and customary paradigms. If your organization can not guarantee you will always work there (and they can’t), what’s the smart Plan B option?
Exactly. And pursue your Plan B with the highest level of integrity. Act so you never have to look over your shoulder, because you never took a shortcut.
Dear Son, your personal integrity, rooted in your deep spiritual core beliefs, should remain first above all other values.
The testing (temptation) will stop when you die. Not before. Do the right thing.
In preparing a Plan B, years in the making, I launched an LLC in 2009, five years before I could take ‘early’ retirement at 55.
Who will keep lookout and warn you so there are no surprises?
Perhaps compulsive, or spot on, it depends who’s judging. But one thing Boy Scouts learn early is, “Be Prepared”.
Further prayer is required when the heat is turned up. And very often, the heat is turned up so gradually, we fail to notice.
And then, without warning, people are asked to leave their organization. With no Plan B, they feel God has abandoned them.
