You know, there are lessons everywhere in life. And, when it comes to my work as a public information officer, those lessons are legion.
I have already told you about how the space program gave me some perspective into how public information officers work together in a Joint Information Center. How a brownie box provides valuable lessons in how to reach an audience.
|Mechanics are experts.. it's best to listen to them...|
|Melissa Agnes speaking about disaster and crisis communications|
How did I do? Well, let's just say that I missed the obvious, and it ended up costing me more than a few unexpected thousand dollars at an auto dealership on a sunny April afternoon.
Remember the most important lesson about any pursuit...
Good judgement comes from experience, and a lot of that comes from bad judgement.
