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.
