Could it be, I wonder, that ‘Below Ten Thousand’ increases resilience in the operating theatre?
By politely and safely asking for the distraction-free work environment you need in order to do your job well, you become more resilient.
You get to spend your energy on something other than frustration.
And if this is true for something as simple as attaining quiet and focus, the question is....
“What else aren’t you asking for that would make your work a simple, flowing and less emotionally fraught place to be?”
