I think it's always a good idea to have a back-up plan - some food storage, some non-electric lighting, a way to cook during an ice storm blackout. We strive for financial resilience by having several months of emergency savings in the bank, by trying to keep our fixed expenses low (car payment, mortgage payment, electric bill), and by trying to pay off our house early so we will no longer have that expense.

Great post on a very important topic!

Resilience is a key attribute for systems from individuals to humanity -- and it can be learned, practiced, and developed. If we, as individuals and as a society are to not only survive, but thrive, as things change around us (Peak Oil, powerdown, climate change, econ chaos, pandemics…) we'll need to consciously work on our resilience.

I'm just about to launch a new ebook Staying Up In Down Times: Creating Resilience, Results, and Real Rewards - With Whatever Life Throws At You!
