Well said.

First, in my mind, is the mission. The mission for most or all of us should be, "make it home with the same number of family members, and holes in your body that you started the day with."

The mission informs the plan, and the plan informs the equipment.

A good place to start is evaluating what you are already carrying; how it can be used or improved.

Ex. cellphone. Better with a spare battery and certain apps

Another idea is to think what might have been useful in a particular scenario...and if you need one.

A good example is an umbrella.

Take a look at commercial kits (bug out, first aid, etc.) and see what you can learn from them.

A good place to start is a class or a book.
