You learn when you make mistakes! However, this does not mean that you should continue to make those mistakes. The real meaning of this phrase is that a first-time mistake is your best teacher. However, this does not mean that we all have to commit that mistake to learn. If one of us learns by making that mistake, the others can learn by example and by avoiding to same pitfalls. This is exactly what I am doing through this post.
Thus, you can get prepared without making a mistake and by learning from the mistake of others! What can be a better preventive measure than this one? Yes! Prevention is better than cure, especially during the bad times when you should act as a provider for your family or community. This preventive skill develops by preparing for such times in advance. After all, you as a prepper would not like to say, “Oh! That was my mistake. It is too late now.” or “I wish I could not have done this!”
Honestly speaking, mistakes make a few most precious lessons reverberate with you, even if you are aware of how to do it better. It is my strong feeling that getting something wrong often is the first step to do something better in the long run. Thus, you can be more positive than before if your instant survival plans remain untested.
Preparing for something involves knowing the don’ts and dos both! Any of these aspects, if missing, makes your knowledge half! Half knowledge is certainly dangerous, right? So, here is the chance to make your knowledge wholesome by knowing the prepping mistakes to avoid! If I made them, you should avoid them!
