    Last week I presented two sessions at the ISFSI Fall Instructor Conference. Both groups were engaged and added lots of great information to the sessions. Fortunately I arrived plenty early to set-up and test the projector settings. It took a several attempts to figure out why my slides were not being projected. Then I looked up at the projector (where it should be). Distraction is Deadly The topic of the first presentation was Distraction is Deadly. I have always enjoyed giving this talk. Almost 100% of drivers know it is dangerous to text and drive. Yet nearly 80% of drivers do it anyway.

    There are times when I want to sit and write about the simple things.  The things I avoid writing about because I don’t think anyone would care.  Mainly wrapped around my daily life.  For example, yesterday I finally figured out the best way to utilize my wood stove to heat the house.  Oh did I make fire! I participated in a revamped version of our annual skills day at work and the fact that I am surrounded by brilliant coworkers was reinforced in spades.

The fact that my blog is now 10 years and 2 months old has enhanced my pondering the past.  What have I done?  What did I accomplish?  But most importantly, what did I give back? As a professional, I receive and read a lot of information from different organizations.  The American Association of Critical-Care Nurses is one that is important to me and receives most of my reading attention.  Each new organization president introduces a theme or mantra for the year.
