“I’ve just got to get the job done” – or at least that is what I was telling myself.

I was rushing a job, that I didn’t need to rush. It just wasn’t that urgent. And it was only a
five-minute job. I was a young sparky, trying to impress.

In short, I was trying to save five minutes, and I went home from work about five weeks later.
A switchboard blew up in my face. BOOM. And I spent more than a month in the intensive
care and burns units.

I made a silly decision; due to the stress and the pressure that I put on myself. But why?
Because I was trying to do a good job. Faster than I needed to. And I wanted to look good
and get praise for it.

I got scared to work as a sparky. I still am, now.

Fast forward 10 years, and I found myself in a much more stressful role. I was now the
Maintenance Superintendent in a smelter.

I was working for someone who couldn’t control their emotions. Every time it got stressful,
this person went BOOM. They were abrupt, aggressive, and even abusive.

And apparently that was OK. Everyone else tolerated it. So, I had to, too.

He had a high stress job, right?

Flying off the handle was considered business as usual.

But, for me, it always hurt to be yelled at, and I never really understood how stress is reason enough to
hurt other humans. This was an example of how not to lead under pressure.

On May 25, 2021, I was on an industrial site that had a major event. The plant went BOOM.
