The Boy Scouts have the right idea and share the right values when it comes to teaching young men the right priorities. What is little known about the motto is the meaning behind the statement. The focus of the statement is meant to encourage you to have a state of mind that allows you to be ready for unexpected events. This requires one to take appropriate steps to be ready, especially for disasters and emergencies.
Because we live in a transient society it is hard to know what hazards you are exposed to when you travel from one jurisdiction to another. Some areas you travel to are exposed to flood hazards and some have hazardous materials exposures. You have exposures at home that are different from those at work. We want to relax but we have to remain vigilant at the same time. The main point is that our frame of mind must be disciplined to understand what we must do to be ready when disasters and emergencies occur. In order to be ready we must be trained. We weren’t born with all the knowledge we need for every situation.
