Sense of humour! :)

It helps to have a sense of humour and not take yourself/myself seriously; what’s strong with you day 7.

When I think of the folk I like to be around, who I can learn from, and work with, those that are able to make it a fun experience or who can make fun without poking fun or being demeaning, that’s who.

Favourite comedians ; Stephen Colbert is an incredible intelligent wit, Jimmy Carr is fast, quick with the retorts and Ricky Gervais is on the edge without going over it. At this time when both fear and covid are spreading, there’s nothing like smiling and laughing for an hour watching ‘The Big Fat Quiz of the Year’, I recommend it!

We learn and retain more when we can smile along with the process. A recent recertification of CPR led by a former EMS paramedic who brought his experience and injected (pardon the pun) some levity into his work was a great example of that, thanks Sven.

When I find myself going on about this or that, or seeing people get frustrated with the system, with technology or on TV about the mixed messages they think they’re getting, it helps to have Squire Barnes and Satellite Debris on Friday evenings.

Enjoy your training, do it with intent, intensity and commitment. Then have some fun!

That’s whats strong with me.
