76 - Personal security and the "Six P Theory"

"What could go wrong?" Last April I posted this great example of the six P theory - or prior planning prevents piss poor performance... Those who we are encouraged to think of as the smartest of us - or at least that's what they themselves seem to tell us, royally screwing up through overreliance on clever solutions but completely forgetting basics like having a plan.
