Climbing the Company Ladder

I find that occupying a workspace 300 feet above the ground, tied off to one of our broadcast towers is a great place to get work done. It has such great advantages.

Let me give you a bird’s eye view of what I mean.

On the ground, some new task is always running over the one I am currently undertaking.  One job is never finished before the next one demands attention.

Rule number one on the tower is: no multitasking. Well, not exactly. The first rule actually is: No falling off.  I feel a real personal attachment to that one, so, let’s call no multi-tasking a solid number two.

Still, there is a serenity derived from performing one task at a time. Like a real human being taking real human pride in their work.

On the ground one can be constantly interrupted by the telephone, cell phone, text message, pager or intercom.

Up on the tower, my safety rule regarding interruptions is: hand delivered notes only.

I don’t get many.

The view is nice too.

  1. I greatly agree. Multi-tasking on the ground is always going to happen. In the air, well I would be to afraid to even try and climb that high. And on top of that!! Hang on to the rope at the same time?!! Thats one task I won’t try.

  2. Frank, I have NO IDEA how you can climb up there like it’s nothing. You will NEVER see me even thinking about attempting that.
