They are not the same.

Preparedness addresses our ability to respond to what happens. We could facilitate preparedness in one of two ways. Through planning or through packing.

Packing is when we carry around a huge survival kit with all items we could possibly need in any situation. It does not require too much planning since I am ready for anything. I will carry a heavy pack around all the time, but I will be prepared.

Planning is the more efficient option. It requires me to do some research on the terrain I should expect to encounter, the weather during my trip, animals and poisonous plants, heat and water sources along the route, and stop points.

By planning, I am able to ensure responsiveness without all the extra baggage.

Good planning will always ensure preparedness.

Preparedness does not require good planning. But it really should…
