Two is one and one is none…
If you work in emergency response or disaster preparedness, you might be familiar with a saying that goes like this: “Two is one and one is none.” What does this phrase mean? It is a recognition that the first option, the first plan, it may fail and a second must be ready and at hand. It is the notion that everything should have a backup. This is an attitude and approach that believes there is too much at stake to allow any single failure to prevent success. For the promises in your life that are too important to fail, adopt this approach. “Two is one and one is none.” Create a backup plan. Think ahead. If the car breaks down, how long will it take to walk there? If the first alarm doesn’t wake me up, where is the second alarm coming from? Call it redundant. You can call it overkill… but if you need it to happen then two is one and one is none.
