That lesson was ingrained to me by a friend and supervisor in an aerospace manufacturing environment.
~Basically when confronted with a stressful situation/decision, break it down into 3 or more smaller pieces which are easier to analyze. - That's much less stressful.
~Then present your answer back, in 3 or more smaller pieces.- It takes a moment or two to do that, insuring a cooler head, a more thoughtful answer which portrays control.
By doing that.. . seemingly overwhelming problems are easier to define and deal with and fewer mistakes are made because it wasn't a snap decision or emotional reaction.
Great. By then, we'll ALL be landing off.
If you watched the video - it's geared toward stress/anger management...the jump-run thing was just an interesting example.
Re: - the people with incomplete information not allowing the ones with more or better information to make a decision.
* I know that YOU know this, but for the less experienced 'Green Light Lemmings' out there~
The 'Green Light' does NOT mean exit!
It means the pilot has put the aircraft in a corridor that 'he believes' will best allow the jumpers to land at the LZ.
The guy looking out the door may see traffic the pilot doesn't... may see any one of a number of things that could require a delayed exit or even a go-around.
Usually - if the green light is on but the guy in the door is looking intently forward, down, back etc. ya might not wanna get your shorts in a twist, could that person has better/more information to base a decision on.
Besides...when it's YOUR turn to exit, if YOU don't look down and decide it's safe to do so, then ya deserve to land off!
We got pretty good at the lookin' out & getting back thing jumping rounds...
Trust me...If I'm spotting & 'jump-run anger' gets abusive ~ landing 'off' won't be topping the list of concerns!
