10 Survival Mistakes to Avoid (1 thru 5)
We’ll the cover first five mistakes to avoid in this blog post and the last five next week.
As with all things in life, even with survival preparation, there’s a right and wrong way to approach it. Starting off on the right foot will save you time, effort, money, and disappointment.
It’ll also mean that you’re actually ‘survival ready’ instead of just thinking that you are. Read the common mistakes below and avoid making them. Your survival depends on it. No pressure!
Avoid getting sucked into a vortex of paranoia where you constantly expect the world to end leaving only a few survivors behind. Stay rooted to reality. Focus on actual catastrophes that are already happening.
This a MAJOR mistake. Proper planning prevents piss poor performance. You absolutely MUST have a plan. In fact, you May need to have several plans. There should be a Plan A and contingency plans B and C, if possible.
During a crisis, the unexpected and unpredictable is real and unfortunately, it’s the norm. That’s why you need to have a plan so that you have something to refer to and you can adapt, improvise, and overcome as you go along.
Skills are more important than gadgets and supplies. The ability to perform first aid is a skill. Buying a comprehensive first aid kit is not enough. You should know how to do CPR, treat wounds, etc. Only then will you be able to get the best out of the first aid kit.
The same applies to firearms, camping gear, navigation equipment, etc. Being able to use the equipment you buy will require you to have skills. Focus on developing these skills.
Practice is a learning process, and you can only learn when you do. All the theory in your head counts for nothing if you can’t execute effectively.
If you have a family, have drills that everyone can follow. A list of tasks and responsibilities for each member of the family will help. When crisis is impending, every one of you will be able to react instinctively.
Thinking takes time and during a crisis, you’ll not have enough mental clarity to devise a really good plan.
Obsessing about bugging out.
The idea of grabbing your gear and getting out of Dodge to go into the woods and survive is thrilling to many. They want to feel capable and adventurous.
The truth of the matter is that in most cases, staying at home and persevering through the crisis is a much better option. You only want to evacuate if there’s a catastrophic event like a hurricane or some hazardous chemical release in the area.
