As we dug into names, we also discussed sayings and philosophies from our upbringing. For the sake of a short blog article, I will only share two of these gems:
- Train until you cannot get it wrong (like done in the airlines) vs. train until you get it right (like is often done in general industry).
- Who is the rich man? The one who is happy with what he does!
The reapplication to our safety profession struck me; pay grades do not make safety pros winners. Nor should our training be as superficial as it often is. What kind of clarity and inspiration can we achieve and deliver by performing the best we can while being happy doing so?
