For as long as I can remember there has been someone yelling the end is coming. We have been through tough times before and we will go through tough times again, regardless of who is political power so I don't see politics coming into this discussion.
The true criminals are the media, who love to glorify the demise of the world, they love to report on all the negative and horrible things that happen, 30 minute piece on a man who kills his family
due to job loss, and a 30 second piece on the innovations another man makes to save his family
Times are tough, we don't have our boat yet, but we have a sold 10 year plan, I am still young 33, our plan it to have our kids
first then travel once we are empty nesters.
Technoligy is helping with electric
or hybrid motors coming into the marine
world. People will overcome, it may get worse before it gets better, but the world is full of smart people.
I personally am focusing on educating myself, over planning, over budget
. Plan for the worse hope for the best.
We plan to have a passive income higher than our needs, as well as income from my business which I am transitioning to allow me to work from anywhere in the world, advancements in communication and internet
will make this even easier when I am ready to go. VPN, wireless networks, cellular coverage, all dramatically improved over the last 10 years, I look at what I had as a kid, and what my kids
have. I still remember the first computer my school
got, now my son has computer class in grade 6 and the entire class is given laptops to use.
Sure the current
conditions can cause people to get desperate and do things that they would not normally do.
But if you are smart you can protect yourself from being a victim, stay away from known areas or trouble travel in groups. Stories of pirate attacks and transmitting within minutes rather than weeks or days, this allows everyone to be up to date on what is happening out there.
As far as the weather
goes, you hear stories larger storms, but funny
how to compair them to past storms, worse storm since 1943 etc etc, so what was happening in 1943 to make that storm so bad. The planet changes, it has been and will continie to change. If there are more storms do what you do now, avoid them, prepair for them. Who here rushes to get to a storm? You check the information you have, then make you decision, stay or go.
Life is short, I learn a while back it is to short to stress out over what you can't control, I don't have a crystal ball or a time machine, if someone does can I get next weeks lotto numbers, that will certainly help with my plans.
Relax enjoy life, as sea or on land, have fun, don't sweat the small stuff and learn to laugh when life kicks your ass, it will make it much easier.
