12 Very Good Rules to Remember

I’ve been reading RedTeams.net for a while and they have a list of rules.  They did some elaborating on the original 12.

RULE 1: ALWAYS HAVE AN ESCAPE PLAN

You know all your plans will fail. There is no doubt about it. So, always have a way out. This applies also to projects, operations, and everything you do. Always know where the exits are, always know what to do in an emergency and be prepared for that. This is so important that it’s the 1st rule.

It currently goes something like:

  • Always have a plan.
  • Always have a back-up plan, because the first one probably won’t work.
  • Always have an escape plan because all the rest of the plans will fail.

Right there with PACE: Primary, Alternate, Contingency and Emergency.

Every other rule on that list I consider equally important, and a decent majority apply to life outside of being on a “Red Team”.
