The Seven Circles of Preparedness

Last year I wrote an article called “The Five Circles of Preparedness”. This video with a 6th and 7th circle would be an expanded version of said article.
1. Your Brain/Mindset/Skills
2. Your Body
3. Your Clothing and EDC Gear
4. Your Car/Office/Survival Stash/Home away from Home
5. Your Home
6. Your Neighborhood/City/State/Country.
7. Your Planet/Other Countries when yours is no longer an option.

Join the forum discussion on this post!

Thank you for the very thought provoking video.

I think you are correct in pointing out the need to focus on all the circles, not just the 5th one (the home).

I also think that depending on circumstances, the home may be intact but you just can't get to it. For example, if your car breaks down in the desert 100s of miles from home all the water stored at home won't be of much help. The road or roads to your home could also be blocked . . .

It would be nice if you put them in a order of difficulty too. Since it's easier to do easier things first.

Managing ones physical fitness, health and weight for example is for some people a lifelong struggle. Buying extra food and water though is quite easy since you do that every week anyway.
