Preparing for disasters

/ 01:45 AM July 11, 2015

COUNTRIES LIKE ours are often battered by storms, so we need to develop the habit of preparing for disasters, such as floods and storm surges. Some helpful thoughts related to this:

Nothing will improve your lot if you yourself do not.—Bertolt Brench

By failing to prepare, you’re preparing to fail.—Benjamin Franklin


Another way to prepare is to think negatively. I’m a great optimist—but, when trying to make a decision, I often think of the worst-case scenario: If I do something, what’s the most terrible thing that could happen? One thing that makes it possible to be an optimist is if you have a contingency plan for when all hell breaks loose.—Randy Pausch


Good fortune often happens when opportunity meets with preparation.—Thomas Edison

If you believe you can accomplish everything by cramming at the 11th hour, by all means, don’t lift a finger now. But, you may think twice about beginning to build your ark once it has already started raining! —Max Brooks

Spectacular achievement is always preceded by unspectacular preparation.—Robert Schuller

To stand tall in times of tribulation, we must kneel down in times of preparation.—Terry Crouson

Action today can prevent a crisis tomorrow.—Steve Shallenberger

You can’t predict the future, but you can plan for it!—Saji Ijiyemi
