Be flexible. Things can be used outside of their intended usage. Things change. You should be able to think outside the box once you understand the reasons for the box.

This is a skill that has to be practiced – you need to learn to break things down into component parts and possible uses.  Can a wheel be a pulley?  Can this wire act as a rope?  You have to practice Macgyverisms in order to Macgyver when needed.

(This is probably my greatest strength, I have spent so much time filling my mental filling cabinet I can pretty much mix and match my way to solving problems.  Maybe that’s because I spent so much time watching MacGyver as a kid – take out all the political indoctrination from that show and its a pretty good teaching aid…)

Rules of Civility: The 110 Precepts that Guided Our First President in War and Peace

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.
