You are that person, its a legitimate potential of chaos and risk, and we want to come home and that is reliant on all our decisions in actuality.
Live like your hero or die a zero, cute sentence right? Could be true for some who have lost their life because one important action was missing from their behaviors underway.
We help each other when we help ourselves, we hold ourselves responsible and its an indication that we are the stewards that transform the risk of life lost to the recovery of life, and they are people, real like you and I. We are them and they are us.
We don't want you to suffer the neglect of an incomplete behavior or program. We care and our partners care. That is why we are in business and its a reflection of our mission.
Restrain your emotions and upgrade your professionalism. Yes this is important and its not just chatter.
Digital communication has evolved and we have adjusted, we must consider the objectives of digital influence. The competitiveness of attention online is a cycle of weakness.
The cycle of seeking likes and an audience we need to be cautious, publishing misleading content is not to be rewarded.
We need to triumph the negotiation of will that works diligently towards not causing harm.
We cannot afford a mishap the same as we cannot afford an unreputable post. It is your role to judge and decipher competency, this requires effort and investigation.
Our communication and connectivity is greatly impacted by social media. We communicate in forums, private messages and groups. We confront publicly or privately the world we work in and how we want to transform deadly potentials into safe practices.
We have all made mistakes, we hold ourselves accountability because we believe we are the steward of this sacred trust. We have a huge responsibility, its a significant burden in fact. Let's make our digital footprint one of validity, valor and encouragement of safe practices.
How can you live like your Hero? Most of our outreach is conducted on social media. You can be a digital hero or a zero, ensure that your posts are clearly stated and that if you are presenting an argument, be prepared to have a solution.
If the photo or video shows behaviors that are skeptical, move on.
Think about what you are posting.
1. Is this your current knowledge level
2. Have you seen other practices that may challenge it
3. Have you researched the difference and made a conclusion on which direction to follow?
If they are not representing safe practices, move on. If they are not showing boating navigation rules properly, move on. If they are sensationalizing and hyping up dangerous and negligent operations, move on.
THINGS HAVE TO MAKE SENSE
There has to be meaning in our shares, this is how we can sustain our maritime community. We do need to challenge and discuss pertinent information. It should not be impulsive and narrow but by taking on the high end of responsibility and then you have a reason to question motives and results. You become a credit to yourself and our community, and we need you!
Digital conflict is real, and sometimes its not sufficient and lacks the next step and can be misinterpreted. Make sure you outline that and explain it in your descriptive field.
Professionalism will place their name on their work, their articles will be consistent and well sourced. Follow these people. Use your tools for searches.
Many online pages are stealing content, altering the original presentation and altering it for dramatization and likes. Be careful if you repost these type of images. Take responsibility for your choices, its going to take you time, yes, but you may be a leader that is needed now and people are listening!
Think before you share information that is misinformation, be the solution. Lives depend upon it!
