Planning ahead is always important. But without forgetting the most important rule. Balance. Balance. Balance.
Asking what if repetitively is not going to prepare you for the eventual outcome. You can dig deep and come up with infinite potential outcomes for even the most insignificant of situations.
Instead - what actions do we take next that lead us towards our goals. I.e. the outcomes we expect and desire. Goals are good - rigidity can be harmful. Plan, adjust. Keep evaluating.
