Motivational Monday #14 - The Bottom of the Cliff

Being prepared is one of those things we know we should do, but don't. Starting on the road to preparedness is like being at the bottom of a cliff, staring straight up. It is overwhelming and scary. Focusing on the top is like looking at an untouchable star. We feel unlikely to get there anytime soon and no way to start the process.

There are many ways to prepare. There are “roughing it” skills to learn, there are medical trainings to obtain, there are supplies to store and there are contingency plans to rehearse. Somewhere in the middle of that chaos there is the paperwork.

Paperwork has become a truth of our lives. We have government documentation, medical records, insurance cards, legal papers and other important and vital information. Each of us has a treasure trove of data we keep somewhere “safe.” The problem is this: during an emergency we will not think about where we put each individual item. Our adrenaline will be pumping, our time will be short and our needs will be many.

Having a single place for all of your paperwork will allow you the “grab and go” option. You will feel secure knowing you have everything when you need it.

Take a look at Prepared Binder - Home Edition and then reconsider that cliff. Did it just get a little more manageable?
