So we know what resilience kind of looks like, or at least we have a definition now. Before we get into solution mode, I want you to take a little survey that I found at Yes! Magazine (thanks to Gustoso for pointing it out).
It only takes a few minutes, and there are only 20 multiple choice questions. This questions certainly made me think and query a few of my behaviours, however I just scraped in to the upper limit with a score of 70. Rainwater tanks, a food stockpile and an independent power supply helped to raise my score, however I don’t think there was enough emphasis on growing your own food.
Let me know how you scored in a comment with areas you think you may have fallen short. It is not a competition, just a tool for seeing what areas we may need to work on. I need to work on local finances and local economy, so I will have to think about that a bit more.
Have a go, because at this early stage, there is certainly nothing to loose. We still have time.
