It’s dangerous to not have options.
To not have a fall-back position.
To not have more than one path to choose.
But it happens. When it happens, whatever you do, don’t freeze.
Keep moving forward.
In the darkest most depressing cul de sac, you have only one possible path: forward.
You have zero chance of finding options when you’re frozen.
If you keep moving you at least have a small chance of new options developing.
When you don’t have options, keep moving until you do.
