Staying realistic. Real life rarely goes like depicted in works of fiction, like movies or books. While these stories have great entertainment value and, to some extent, provide some really good what-if scenarios, you should keep in mind that the good guys don’t always win.
In this podcast, I discuss two pieces of fiction, a recent movie and a short online book, that deals with the ‘good guys’ losing. Generally, I don’t like this type of fiction because I’m usually looking to escape from everyday life for a little bit and be entertained, etc. But pieces like this are good, because they break us out of that expectation that good guys always win and bad guys always lose.
The point of this is that without proper preparations, you could easily find yourself on the losing side of a disaster.
Remember: Complacency Kills.
