The planning part of preparedness isn’t glamorous. It’s not really all that fun. It takes time. It takes thought, research and more often than not, real world experience (or as close to it as possible).
Planning isn’t fun so it’s not talked about much in the preparedness world.
However, planning is essential.
If you fail to plan, you plan to fail.
A little bit of planning now will save you a ton of time and stress during a real world event. During an actual emergency or disaster, you won’t have time to formulate a plan.
Even if all your plans go completely off base because of good ol’ murphy’s law, you still created the base work and it’ll be easier for you to change or adapt a new plan because of your initial planning.
Planning also helps get everyone on the exact same page, as well as getting insight from the whole household. Keeping the plans locked inside of your head won’t help anyone and will create more stress in an already stressful situation.
I was a guest on the Next Generation Podcast and we talked all about the importance of planning when it comes to preparedness.
