Think, Learn, Plan, Test, repeat…
This is called the exercise cycle and it is vital to creating workable plans that people use. Every time you practice a plan you learn it’s weaknesses. Fix those weak points and retrain and retest. Eventually you will be so skilled and so prepared that it is second nature.
A side benefit of this cycle is that it trains the brain for action and sets in shortcuts and paths. If you practice long and hard enough eventually when the problem strikes your brain will think it is a test and stay much calmer.
The exercise cycle is a vital part of emergency management and it should be a vital part of personal preparedness. By running the cycle you learn without the cost of failure during disaster.
These precepts are my creed, and having prepper precepts guides me when I face tough choices. A wise man once told me that when facing a moral problem, the right choice is usually the action you don’t want to take.
I am not a pollyanna person that is wishy washy or blindly follows rules, heck I have a little rebellious streak and love to know the WHY of rules, but I do respect and understand the need for law and know how vital it is for a society to have a moral code.
By knowing what I believe in you can know how I will act. This is very important in times of stress. If you don’t want to read these precepts one by one, the completed list can be found here: Completed 27 Prepper Precepts.
