PAPod 165 - What the hell do you mean by “Capacity?”

17Mar

I use the work capacity like it has meaning that everyone on earth already knows.  

I know now that is not true...

Here is my definition of the word "Capacity."

Remember, Safety is not the absence of an accident, safety is the presence of capacity.

PAPod 163 - Mass Shootings and Simplification

3Mar

I really struggled to make this podcast.  Not because I didn't have stuff to say (I always seem to have stuff to say) but because I was afraid I would make people angry.

I think that is a stupid reason to not do a podcast.

I hope this makes people angry - although I softened this message a lot before I posted this message.  

We need to let go of our need to blame somebody for not predicting these events and start to really talk about a system prevention to this very unique problem we have in the United States.

Our need to blame is getting in the way of our ability to improve.
