improvidus , apto quod victum
Improvise, Adapt, Overcome” is an unofficial slogan among Marines made popular by Clint Eastwood’s movie, Heartbreak Ridge. Whether you plan to bug in or bug out should tough times occur, the ability to improvise, adapt, and overcome problems will be necessary regardless of how well-stocked, tooled, provisioned, or conditioned you are.
Physical: You will need the power, stamina, and flexibility to work with the tools and materials around you.
Mental: You will need the intellectual capacity to plan, prioritize, and apply yourself to the tasks at hand.
Spiritual: You will need the capacity to deal with discomfort, pain, and suffering while maintaining an attitude that you will use to overcome the problems facing you.
