LEARNING & PLANNING
Plan... Practice... Plan...
I can’t stress the importance of planning.
There could be many disaster scenarios that you could endure.
Or none at all. It all depends what life throws at us.
You’ll have all of the gear and supplies you need to survive those disasters. But most importantly, the knowledge to put it all together and do something about it.
Planning also means that you and your family will know exactly what to do when disaster strikes. Others may be panicking, you will be prepared and able to survive.
Here in the UK, we don't get unthinkable disasters. Not yet anyway.
But we have had our fair share, like flooding, storms, wild fires, unexpected cold fronts, power outages from storms, also the Covid pandemic has effected us all.
Which is not over yet.
This doesn’t mean that we should be complacent. It also doesn’t mean that there is no chance of a major disaster affecting us.
Being prepared, means staying alive.
Learning about prepping is a lifestyle.
From the smallest scenario to the unthinkable scenarios.
You will start small and grow big, as long as you keep it up.
You don't have to do it all in a week, as that's impossible.
Take bit sized chunks of learning, take it in and move on to the next.
It will all fit together like a big jigsaw puzzle, then you will be on your last piece and it will all fit together.
Learn in your own time, but don't let it overwhelm you.
It has taken me a while to get all this information, and the fact that I am writing and building this website, proves that nothing is impossible if you take your time. Bear in mind the more you know the better you are prepared.
I am still learning and you will too.
That will never stop.
A few last words for now
There is a saying amongst us preppers
"Don't just do something, just sit there"
It's taken from a quote by Zen master and Buddhist teacher, Thich Nhat Hahn :
“Often we tell ourselves, “Don't just sit there, do something!”
But when we practice awareness, we discover that the opposite may be more helpful: “Don't just do something, sit there!”
