I’m a planner at heart. It’s something I’ve always done, naturally, ever since childhood. I planned out my entire college course progression before I even started college—but that kind of planning isn’t what I want to talk about today. I want to discuss why you should plan for the worst… Before the worst happens.
That sounds depressing, doesn’t it?
But those who plan for the worst are the ones who make it out alive.
Hold up, Colleen, what are you even talking about? “Make it out alive”?
At my job, I’m on our Safety Committee. It sounds like the “safety police” until you understand that my company’s #1 core value is, in fact, safety, and we just had a Safety Conference. It’s a big deal.
And safety is something that needs to carry over to our personal lives.
The best way to be safe is to plan. Prepare. Understand what the stakes are and to know what you’re going to do if the worst happens.
Ergo, plan for the worst before it strikes.
