i have always admired what my father taught me, may it be informal discussions where we bring about our own point of views or when he would transfer a lesson from his life.
this was waay back, when i was child that my father inculcated this habit in my personality of noticing things. it's the way he mentioned that you should observe everything around you, question how things are and evaluate why they are the way.
Later as i grew up, he gave me another lesson.
"be alive, throughout your life"
Little did i know that this was all a part of a bigger lesson which he let me dissolve in my personality through years of practice and that too when i was still a child.
Today, while Paul introduced us to the workshop the headline caught my eye "Unclear and present danger".
it quickly brought me to think about the dangers we are not expecting, anticipating while following the daily routine of our lives. That our observation leads to create a model inside our mind about the daily dangers which can be anticipated unconsciously if we integrate them in our model.
And although the workshop dealt in identifying and labelling a few processes with duly given names, stages, errors and factors etc. i consider that observation on a routine basis and an innate habit can lead to fully utilizing the mind in identifying the dangers.
an example of which can simply be that managers observe and question their sub ordinates on the maintenance procedures, they don't miss out on inquiring about all the necessary points and also regarding a few of those which are not in the maintenance schedule list but have been observed by the team.
