Should you burn the ships and charge ahead or have a contingency for every mishap? Money Heist Season 5 came out today, so let’s talk about plans. Don’t worry, no spoilers.

Some say that burning all backup plans is crucial for success. Others say that success comes from careful strategy featuring Plan B, C, and D (like the Professor from Money Heist). 

Here’s the secret: It doesn’t matter. Success is a result of execution more than planning. If having a backup plan allows you to take the first step, then take that route. If having no other option but the main plan helps you take the first step, go for it. You’ll succeed not because your plan was perfect but because you took the first step.
