I know company and chief officers who have no sense of timing. Imagine their surprise when not only do they get it wrong, but they look bad in the process. It doesn’t matter how right you are, if the time and opportunity don’t meet, you will find yourself on the losing end.
Unless I am compelled to do so for official business, or intend to engage in a learning session in which I can take away lessons from the event, I’d just as soon do the things I do and avoid hanging around to look at the carnage of someone else’s bad day.
It was inevitable that something bad would happen, given what we know now. All we can do now is honor the lives of those who go before us, pray for the families and help them deal with this tragedy, and hope we all learn from the events that evening.
