Many of the same principles used to guide the most serious of preppers bear more than just a passing resemblance to the financial preparedness principles advocated by Darren Pawski. While preppers discuss how to best prepare for various situations in which some sort of disaster has led to chaos and turmoil, financial planners such as Pawski recommend that clients consider a variety of contingency plans that ensure financial preparedness regardless of the circumstance.

Preppers also advocate for the diversification of assets, though a financial planner will define the term a bit differently than a prepper would. A prepper would likely be referring to resources most at risk of becoming scarce as a result of some unexpected tumult, while a financial planner would be talking about the diversification of investments in order to ensure the client is able to mitigate the risk that could be associated with a single-minded investment focus.

Obviously, the most recognizable similarity between preppers and financial planners such as Pawski is the fact that those who listen to the advice provided by either group are going to be much better off for the future as a result of working to create a sense of long-term security in the present. It’s often hard for people to look past what is immediately in front of them, but working to prepare for the future is absolutely necessary independent of any situation or circumstance.

Gym And Workout Preparation

Getting in shape and taking the time to get your body right with exercise are extremely important to your health and also your well-being. Taking time to improve yourself at a gym is the most popular way to achieve the fitness you desire. Going to the gym for the first time can weird, awkward and even intimidating. A lot of people believe that the gym is for people who are already in better shape and let the fear of their self-image take over, but that’s not true.

Before you make that trip to the gym the first time there are a few things that you must prepare for. Get to know your gym and familiarize yourself with the rules as every gym is different with what is and isn’t allowed. Get to know the machines and equipment. Nothing is worse for your overall health than using the equipment the wrong way and injuring yourself or someone else.

Don’t think that since you are new to the fitness experience that you are the only one that has preparations to make. Everyone must prepare before a workout by stretching or injury may occur. In Jeff Halevy’s recent interview, he says he makes preparations before giving his client their workouts to transform their bodies by measuring their weight and fat/muscle ratio and many other tests to understand who he is working with. 

If you have learned anything here today, it’s that pro or amateur, preparations are needed to get the most out of your goals.
