Religiously keep your every day carry (EDC) items on yourself – in your pocket, on your wrist, in your wallet – when you are out. Every man should create his own set of every day carry items. However, some of the more popular (and useful items) are universal due to their importance.
These include the following:
- A handkerchief or bandana
- A wristwatch
- A pocket knife
- Cell phone
- A wallet, containing cash (and possibly credit card(s))
A fine addition to your EDC kit should also be a concealed weapon (such as a handgun and an accompanying concealed-carry license) if possible.
An additional item that will prove to be useful whether you are a preacher or a plumber is a small notepad or an index card (along with a pen). When you need to write down a thought, a phone number, or sketch out an idea, there’s nothing as handy and reliable as pen and paper.
You should purposefully decide what to EDC, and then do it. This is sensible and responsible. A prepared man is less reliant on circumstances.
Be that kind of man. Religiously bring your EDC items with you, every day.
