2017 - Time for a "Resilience Plan"?
As 2016 closes and 2017 gets started, I have been reviewing what I did the past year to get ready for what seems to be coming. In some ways good, in others bad. If I had to sum it up, I would unfortunately have to rate it, "One step forward, two steps back."
The next two decades are going to be "interesting", as in the proverbial Chinese curse, "May you live in interesting times", but in all honesty as much as we, and that means the entire population focuses on the macro aka big picture things, its the micro, aka personal that most effects us in our day to day lives.
You can see this in the most recent ADR comments, where the number of celebraty deaths this past year came up. Some said it was more, some said that it wasn't. Truthfully, who the frak cares? That some pop icon of my twenties, overdosed on pain pills and was found dead in a studio elevator is a sad thing but for the most part a meaningless thing too.
What does have meaning is me working too many hours and not checking up on my plants, leading to under watering and serious stress to plants that I will someday expect to feed me. While I wasn't watching, my lettuce plants grew flower stalks and have bolted.
I think its time to consider how I can be better prepared for the future shocks and disruptions that we all expect to happen over the next two decades.
I think its time to come up with a "Resilience Plan".
