This post quotes those who are in the know about the importance of self-preparedness and self-awareness.
“Failing to prepare doesn’t just hurt you. It hurts your loved ones. It hurts your friends. It hurts your coworkers. It hurts your neighbors. It hurts your community. It hurts your world. It hurts you.
We’ve all heard the joke that only the unprepared survive. But it just doesn’t always have to be that way. The unprepared will always be in the minority. But for those that aren’t prepared, you are in the minority. But in the end, you are the people who are going to survive.
The problem is that many of us will never realize that we’re unprepared. Because many of us have already been in the minority. If we fail to realize this, we’ll never learn how to prepare for what life throws at us.
It is also true that the unprepared will always be the ones that suffer the most. Because if we expect everything to be easy for us, we are only giving ourselves the opportunity to fail. Because while we may die in the process, the unprepared will still live forever. But once we realize that we were unprepared, we will no longer suffer in silence. Instead we will be able to finally say, “I am sorry I was unprepared. You were not unprepared for what I did to you.
If you’re expecting to be prepared, you’re doing more than just preparing for your own inevitable demise. You’re not just preparing for your own inevitable demise, you’re preparing for the inevitable death of the person you thought you were preparing for. That’s why it’s so important to prepare for your own death.
Roidschilf, the creator of the original Deathloop, is probably the most famous person you can think of. The fact that he was never prepared for his own death probably has more to do with his own death than anything else. In a way, Roidschilf is a role model for the modern day “prepared” person. The difference is that the prepared person does nothing, and the unprepared person does everything.
Roidschilf died from a cerebral hemorrhage, but he didn’t die for lack of preparation. The fact that we’re able to understand and use the preparedness he provided, and to be able to make a statement of self-sacrifice in the face of a terrible fate, is the most amazing thing I’ve ever seen.
And then there was the quote from the film of the same name. The prepared person is the one who puts the time into learning to do something before it becomes a habit, or a routine, or a self-perpetuating behavior. To prepare for something, one is to know the steps to take, and have a plan. The unprepared person is the one who never really takes the time to practice, or to get it right, or to figure out what they’ll do instead.
In the movie of the same name, which was based on a non-fiction book by John O’Connor, the title character was a man who decided to commit suicide in the desert by setting himself on fire. The real-life person he tried to kill was a woman, who was left behind in the desert to die. To prevent her from being killed, he took the time to practice setting fire to himself.
