Stop wasting the time you have now to live life to its fullest! If it happens, then it does. Worry about it then!
It's the difference between preparation, and paranoia . And, all the time and preparation in the world, will absolutely help. People who have learned to survive off nature, will survive. People who have weapons, will have a much better chance. A person with no survival training, won't last very long. This is assuming of course, that the initial event is survivable.
Now, if you are paranoid, and waste the life you have, constantly preparing, then that is a different story. But you seem to be lumping all preparation in, as a waste of time. What isn't a waste of time? Why is something a waste of time?
