The Sky Is a Big Place
The bombardment of email, chat, video calls, tasks and issues, can feel like the sky is falling during every hour of every day in the work week.
A few years back I watched a TV show about Air Traffic Controllers. When asked about how he dealt with the anxiety of planes full of people flying close to each other the ATC replied:
The sky is a pretty big place.
The traffic controller screen is a concentration of critical data: a flat black and white representation at scale of 3D space. You have to pay attention to it. But don’t confuse it for the real world.
