GDOTS is out in force. The Georgia State Office of Transportation is outside distributing salt on the streets for the impending 3 inches of sleet or even havel descending later now.
I’m waiting within my house, looking out, and curiously with a spark of inspiration. Waiting means understanding that the temperatures will fall 20 levels and 3 inches of sleet or hail begins, within hours. Clear grey clouds and a spooky, nearly comparative, calm mask the fury earlier this Southern storm.
What’s this important compared to Boston along with the historic amount of snow they are enduring?
Recall the first couple of times you rode to a roller coaster. Expand radically the pitch and collapse of these roller coaster endings and you’ve got North Georgia roads. Take the snowplows of New England, because snowstorms happening less.
What’s the similar difficulty from ice hockey and worse, ice storms. Watch two inch deep sheet of ice on each sidewalk and road. Expand that image with all the dark ice you see on your area, when anything lands in addition to the fundamental ice sheet. Simply speaking, ice sheets hilly North Georgia streets aren’t suitable for the weak of heart!
People who watched and laughed in the Atlanta snow storm of 2014, known locally as Snowmageddon, logically overlooked the true issue. Almost instantly, two to three inches of ice on these hilly streets created impossible logistics.
Add in the variables of everybody leaving at precisely the exact same time, mishaps and sufficient nearly empty gasoline tanks. Change the term snow and telephone it Iceageddondon.
Next employ confronting this situation in your life or business. Depending on the matter, its time and your individual situation in the moment, you might have responded to match in among three primary classes.
From the first class, a few people today enter overcompensate mode. They record every possible situation which could happen for every conceivable period of time that the storm may survive. This may be helpful if they immediately begin working to the most likely and most crucial matter. This may be bad if they begin attacking the difficulties having an alphabetical prioritization or predicated upon what sequence the record was made.
Recall media tales of shoppers cleanup out grocery stores of food prior to a blizzard, hurricane or tornado. We see empty baskets and shelves strewn with clutter from unsuspecting buyers buying five to ten times as far as they really require. Following the stormthey reunite four to eight times as far as they had and are incensed when the retailer charges a restocking charge or won’t take crashed bread, melted popsicles and spoiled milk. We all were in this category to a level in our own life, especially the very first time confronting a circumstance.
The next group recalls the past similar storm. You think back on what went well and what went askew. You then sensibly restock basic markets, gasoline and other essentials, so more folks can get what they truly require. This is not difficult to say , but difficult to do in actual private or business life.
The last group freezes and does nothing. Afraid of doing the wrong thing, seem ridiculous or be second guessed, they don’t do nothing. Atlanta Snowmageddon was actually Iceageddon. We all have been in this category to a degree in our own life, especially when the problem suggests it’s going to become a political conflict.
Depending upon where you live, there’ll always be another ice storm, blizzard or tornado on your own personal life. There’ll always be a catastrophe, money shortfall to pay for payroll or irate customer in your business life. What do you do in order to work more frequently from the center set of the way you look at, address or listen to your next private or business problem?
