First time I heard such expression, cliché, was at UC med center, with dept. Chair Mark E. Linskey, MD,
, M.D. beside Bill Loudon, MD-PhD. He prefaced it with “just to play devil’s advocate…” If plan A doesn't work out, what's your Plan B? "
I didn't know that it means for that phrase: “just to play devil’s advocate…” But, I heard that word out and loud "devil" -
I didn't say any as I didn't like superficial "smart saying" - sound you're a fortune teller, a prophecy for future. Solidly grounded inside the soil of the Bible, I refused to take the bait of being in prophecy's traps - never opening your mouth to predict bad outcomes - you're breathing life to bad evils, as Joel Osteem warned - you had a million bad thoughts, but speak out loud. Thank God, I held my ground against being a smart prophecy.
Stick to your plan A: Persevere to succeed. Never give up !
Well. Something new for today :-) - psychological basis for such a habit ...
