    I’ve heard almost 19 countries are in danger of similar earthquake and tsunami! Hope, they won’t be affected, as it’s really awful what happened with Japan. I don’t want to watch more horrible videos from the place of tragedies!The last video, with which I was so frightened from http://www.torrentoff.com I can’t sleep calm, as the scenes from it always stay before eyes! Let God save us

    California is not immune from the triple threat of temblors, tsunamis and radiation leakage from nuclear power plants along our coast.I wonder whether we will respond by helping each other as a community or act like each man/woman for themselves.We have much to learn from the common Japanese folk about this.
    I agree with Marc that being prepared for the worst, both in the business and personal arena will go a long way in mitigating the effects of such a calamity.

    Marc,
    I just heard Jim Collins (Good to Great, Built to Last) talk in San Diego and on his top ten list for resilient companies is the ability to go without revenue for 6 months. We’ve heard it over and over again: Maintain prudent reserves and a balance sheet that won’t eat up your earnings when the worst happens.
    Great post,
    Jim

    You make some excellent points with sound solutions. You would think that after all this time, governments and businesses would learn from their mistakes and the errors of others. They say we learn history because it repeats itself. Unfortunately, the truism in life is that we know of history but don’t learn anything. Think of the amazing results if businesses would follow your advice: keep it coming!!
