Day 13 NaBloPoMo Pressure Crunch, Ginger.

Day 13
Do you work well under pressure when it is crunch time?
When I worked for pay, yes, worked well under pressure at crunch time.
It was the nature of the business in which I worked,
Air Traffic Control (ATC).
Think of firefighters at a station.
Much of the time things are routine. They are there for their shifts.
They maintain equipment, keep up to date on training and any changes affecting their work,
handle the everyday things that come up, like people coming in for BP checks,
directions, socialize with coworkers on breaks, etc.
Yet, when they are busy, They ARE BUSY!
CRUNCH TIME often means the decisions they make have consequences
that affect people's lives.

Same with ATC.
Tremendous pressure, not always, yet often enough.
And that's the job.
"Skillful pilots gain their reputation from storms and tempests."
Or, as cooks are known to say,
If you can't stand the heat...

Unlike the song, Rainy Days & Monday's don't get me down.
More beauty from my gardens on this lovely, rainy day.
More blooming ginger.
