You are comfortable where you're at.
When was the last time you were pushed to your limits
How do you honestly Judge your Fireground performance
Does it take a mistake or a near miss to change it
Does it take a health scare or near miss to make you work harder.
Tim McGraw “live like you are dying
You are putting your needs ahead of the others.
Station life is hard.
Supporting your officer
Pushing your firefighters around you
Being selfish in needs… What makes your comfortable whether its television, or “creature comforts’
Not mission focused.. Gear prep, response, prep
Don’t know your area enough
You won’t allow yourself to Fail or be embarrassed
You don’t see yourself from the outside in
You're see you skills and abilities as good enough
You see your fitness as good enough
All your fires have gone out so far.
Nothing bad has happened.
How do you want to push yourself and others.
Is your company the go-to company.
How do you evaluate your performance
