You may have heard that if there’s a big medical event that happened in the last five minutes that you should call for help as soon as possible. There may be a specific time during that time frame, such as 1:00 a.m. or 2:00 a.m., but I’m sure you aren’t thinking of that. Instead, consider all the possible actions you could take in that very short time frame.
In the world of medicine, the “short term” time period is actually very important. For example, the average time from a serious injury to an ambulance arriving at a hospital is about 10 minutes. The longer it takes for the ambulance to arrive at the hospital, the more often it has to be dispatched to different hospitals.
To get the best results from your emergency call, it helps to have a sense of what the next few minutes will look like. For example, if you are getting a call from your boss that you have a very serious emergency, try to think about the possible actions you could take in the next three minutes. If you have a phone that you can use to record the call, then you can take notes about what to do, with the benefit of having the time to consider what your options are.
You can also think about what you might do in case you are being delayed by the weather, or by having to wait for your next doctor’s appointment. This is especially useful if you are a person who tends to procrastinate. This isn’t just about being able to get things done. It’s also about being ready to act.
If you’re someone who procrastinates, then I’m sure you’ve heard of mayday. It’s a phone call that lets you know that you have enough time to prepare for what’s coming. This is especially useful if you’re involved in a project that can’t start until you’re able to get up to speed with it.
Yes, I mean mayday is an acronym for “mayday, do not answer”. Its a phone call that lets you know that your boss has a mayday and has decided to do something about it. It is the quickest and most effective way to get your boss on the phone with you and to let them know that you are ready for the meeting.
The reason mayday is an acronym is because it was created in the early ’80s as a code word for a planned event. It has since been re-invented into a phone call that tells people how they can prepare for a specific event. Nowadays, it’s a phone call that lets you know that you have enough time to prepare for whats coming.
My boss has decided that since he has already been to the last meeting, he can come in and do this. I can only imagine that he is in a hurry, and that he is very stressed out at work. I have to admit that I would feel similarly if I was in my next life right now and one of my friends told me about a big meeting coming up. I’d be pretty stressed to let my boss know I needed to be there and ready to be involved.
Like most people, we want to be prepared for the unexpected. But in our current world, the unexpected is just an event. To be ready for something, we must have a plan. Our plan must include the things that will make life better if we do it. Our plan must include what we will do if we fail. For instance, if we know that we will have to face the same type of situation in the future we need to be ready to deal with it.
Of course, in our world the unexpected is not an event, but a series of events to deal with in one day. If we all knew that we would be dealing with a series of events, then we would be prepared. But because we don’t know and can’t plan for it, we’re usually left to our own devices when the unexpected happens.
