Hello
Im from peruvian, and i found interesting the article, but there are some terms that is difficult to understand, like "ShotGun", more or less what it is means.

Good Post.
Thank You


Thanks Esteban,

I apologize for not being more international friendly in my post. To simplify: a Shotgun is the kind of gun (firearm) that shoots (fires) a series of small pellets or large slugs. It's used in bird hunting with the smaller pellets and multiple pellets loaded at one time. This way when it is fired, there is a better chance of hitting the target. I used the term to say throwing a lot of things at the problem and hoping one of them hits it Smile

Thank you for the article! I have always been quietly grateful that in my IT line of work I didn't have to be responsible for human lives (not directly anyway). The analogy used here cleverly illustrates the parallels and how we can approach our IT jobs with the same calm and structure as do people in much more critical situations. I think the benefits of planning and keeping cool head are the most important ones.

Great Article!

My first career was an EMT working on an ambulance (back in 1980), and never thought about how it applies to what I do now... gave me an interesting perspective...

That was back in the wild west days of EMS still, wasn't it? Smile

I like trying to find lessons that are transferable from career to career or life lesson to career, vice-versa. I'm lazy ;-)
