Do a Google search for “prepping plans” and you’ll get back thousands of pages with thousands of ideas on different prepping plans ranging from free to hundreds of dollars.
Each one usually claims to be the ‘end all, be all, only one you’ll need.’ The truth is, there is only one prepping plan that suits absolutely everyone, regardless of where they live, what they believe, or what their culture is. It’s a universal truth!
The only prepping plan that will work for you is the one that you design yourself.
Before you get to the design stage, though, you have to define certain things within your own mind. If you try to do it any other way, you will only end up with half-completed projects and no real grasp or newly learned skills.
You’ll also be frustrated and more likely to give up.
There are basic things that each person needs to survive in this world and it rings true across all continents. The way you meet those needs is the difference between your plan and someone else’s.
The first step in understanding your personal preparedness plans is to know what you are preparing for! Seems simple right? Many people overlook this.
Do some research on the crime in your area and your area’s natural disasters and you will quickly understand what truly threatens you or what could.
Next, take a look at what you have. What resources do you have at your disposal and what resources and skills could you have access to easily?
This is an important part of painting your current preparedness status. Be honest here. What do you really have that you can depend on?
Now is the hardest part. Where do you fall short? What are the skills and resources that you need to gather to deal with the threats you have already identified?
From here you have a base that can be used to develop any kind of preparedness plan.
