"Conflict is a bad thing.
We should all have the same plan.
The same idea."
If everything is perfect then whats better?
How do you improve?
Your muscle fibers grow from being stretched and torn. Then rebuild bigger and stronger.
Why can't we apply this to the fire service?
Break your apparatus, guidelines, and ideas down.
Are they up to date?
Have times changed?
Is your staffing different?
It may be right, it may be wrong but what is important is if its the better option.
It does not matter who's idea it is.
The best idea has to win.
Not yours, mine, or ours.
The best one.
What does all this conversation, conflict, and work mean?
That hated word in the fire service.
Understand that change is not a bad thing.
If it wasn't for change we'd still be using buckets and shoveling horse shit.
Learn, work, try new things.
Lift, read, go to classes outside your bubble.
Or we could keep it "the way we've always done it."
Always forward, always moving.
