Topic: Preparing for the Unexpected
About This Week's Chat
Wouldn't it be nice to wake up every morning and know exactly what was going to happen in the day ahead? Unfortunately, most days incur a few bumps along the way and planning for them can be extremely difficult. By focusing some of your energy on crisis preparation, you'll feel more equipped to confidently climb the mountain ahead.
An "unexpected crisis" can be anything from a natural disaster to losing your job. With such extremes, how can you possibly plan ahead for one?
That is the question we'll be discussing during our #MTTalk on Friday (April 29, 2016). We're very excited to find out how you plan and prepare for the unexpected. To get you thinking about the topic, here's a preview of the questions we’ll be asking:
What is your usual emotional response to an unexpected event?
What did previous unexpected events teach you about being prepared?
What helps you to maintain a positive attitude when unexpected events occur?
Since this #MTTalk is all about preparation, we've prepared some excellent resources on the topic! These articles will help you to gauge the risk of your situation so that you can better plan for the unexpected.
You may not be able to foresee a crisis but, with a little preparation, you will feel much more able to handle it if it does happen.
We always appreciate your participation! Your involvement helps our community to grow and learn, and provides valuable insight into the resources we offer. We’d love for you to attend our #MTTalk this Friday, April 29, 2016, at 1pm EST. And your insight into “Preparing for the Unexpected” could lead to your response being featured on our blog. Check back next week to see if you were featured.
