There’s something to be said about being content with what you’ve got. That’s why people say a bird in the hand is worth two in the bush. It’s better to have something than the risk of nothing.
But I have a hard time with that. It’s really a saying that justifies—correctly or incorrectly—a risk-averse attitude toward life. But if we take the time to really plan and are diligent with readjusting, we can actually have much greater success.
