You can always get Better at what you do. You can always improve. If you ever think you’ve seen/know everything there is to know – That’s when you sure to find yourself in a dangerous situation; Because it’s then that you become lackadaisical about your training and forget what you’ve learned…. Maybe even overlooking the obvious….
A number of years ago my husband worked quite a bit with computers . One day he was trying to figure out why something wasn’t working right. He was pulling his hair out trying to figure out the problem. I noticed the problem and tried to bring it to his attention, but he was so focused on searching for some complicated reason that my efforts were futile. Finally, I held up the cables that had disconnected and showed them to him….. He was so sure of his abilities, that he had overlooked the obvious.
Now in this case the situation wasn’t life threatening or critical, but when it comes to the calls that you are likely to find yourself on as a Firefighter, Police Officer, or Paramedic the missing of the obvious can spell out disaster.
Getting better at what you do is not just about endless drilling it’s about learning new things and improving on what you already know. Strive to be better… Strive to do your best…..
Remember: There’s Always room to get BETTER and Always Stay SAFE
