Very good post. I thought I was prepared for this years tornado season, but as I found out, I was terrible in a real life situation. Sorta "lost my head" mainly because everyone was looking at me for advice on what to do. I have learned from that mistake. It sorta goes when I was working in the hospital and someone "coded", I would run up 12 flights of stairs to the patients room, jump in there, knocking over stuff in the crash cart, knowing that I had to get up there grab the laryngoscope, intubate, ambu, then switch with chest compressions. With all of that on my mind, I freaked out and went into my sympathmemetic mode and was thinking of only what books told me to do. I learned the hard way when a older doctor pulled me aside during all of this and said "calm down son...".

Today I went fishing in my pond. I haven't been in a few years. First cast, pulled out a bluegil. I told myself, "this is what I learned a long time ago and will feed me for a day". Experience is king!
