How do you track your preparation progress?
I took this book–How to Survive the End of the World as We Know It— and made each chapter into a spreadsheet sheet: One for water, one sheet for first aid, one for food, one for security, etc. It’s highly tailored ot our situation – edge-of-rural suburban, Deep South (double growing season), state capitol w/ 100K people 7 miles away, sq, ft gardening, only, local laws, family health concerns (100 miles from two nuke plants, aging). I doubt my framework would help you much but the book is very thorough and you could use it the way I did. Once the list was refined I just chipped away at it.
Hope this helps. – Safewrite
For me prepping/transition matches a big business project in terms of complexity, timeframe and people involved, so I need to
- define subgoals
- set deadlines
- delegate to other people
- break everything down to simple (doable) steps
I would suggest to manage it using whatever project management tools you use on a daily bases. David Allen’s Getting Things Done is something I feel comfortable with.
One word of caution: Keep the overhead as low as possible. If you spend more time on project management then on prepping then you might want to let loose a little.
