This used to be the mindset section, but I expanded it. When it comes to emergency preparedness, I have found that mindset is a large part of success. A positive attitude and the will to win are a part of mindset.
I’ll admit I am a bit of a geek, I love to think about thinking and to apply research to problems. I try not to be too wrapped up in my head and get out and do things.
This section is devoted to general articles, information, and ramblings. Especially such articles that are not better served in the How to Section.
Many of the articles in this section are written by contributors other than myself. I did this so that you can see other views that may be different than mine. No one knows everything, especially in a topic as large and complex as disaster preparedness.
Any person who has begun to seriously prepare has had to make compromises between current wants and future needs, how much to spend on preparations, and how many people to stock supplies for. If you’re married, you need to have a spouse that shares your concerns or you’re going to fight over every no. 10 can the mailman delivers. I don’t need to go into detail on how much you should store, or how to store it or what makes the cut on your list of lists, as survivalblog.com has visited this issue in depth. The purpose of this article is to help communicate the need to prepare with those in your family that you want to help without alienating them, or downgrading your own preparedness plans.
