Time management is a term that is very popular in today’s fast-paced world of getting ahead. How many times have you heard, “There is just not enough time in a day”? Perhaps you have used it yourself. I know I have on more than one occasion.

In this article I will discuss how time management, or better yet, the proper use of time, can save your life. While many of my examples mention snow and blizzards, the actions described here apply to any severe occurrence that may happen, no matter when or where it happens.

In the big picture of survival we have no shortage of stuff. Our problem is taking the time to not only put that stuff together, but also learning how that stuff works. All of that stuff is no good if it has never been taken out of the package since the day it was purchased. Make the time now to learn about your gear, because go time is not the time to start reading the directions.

By far, the greatest threats to our survival, both long and short term, come from nature. It doesn’t matter where you live; every area is prone to some sort of adverse natural occurrence. I’m talking about hurricanes, earthquakes, blizzards and the like. Over the years, I have experienced most of them and I can tell you none of them are pleasant, but they are all survivable. You just need to take the time to make sure you are prepared.

When I was growing up in New England some 50-odd years ago, weather predictions were pretty much hit or miss and seemed archaic compared to today’s methods. Predicting long-term weather events was sketchy at best. The only thing we knew was that it snowed in the winter, rained in the spring, got hot in the summer and was windy in the fall. We almost never knew when a severe blizzard was coming our way until it was almost upon us. That meant that we needed to stay prepared for almost anything all of the time. My parents used to say, “If you want to know what the weather is like just look out the window”. We have come a long way over the years.
