Make different kind of list for the new year!

Make different kind of list for the new year!

It's going to be a list of names. Here's how you build it and what you're going to do about it:

  1. Start with your name. If you have not refreshed your CPR skills in the past 12-18 months, put a star before your name.
  2. Now start adding the names of your family members, friends, acquaintances, etc. If they have been trained or refreshed within the past 12-18 months, you can skip the star before their name on the list.
  3. Spend a moment realizing that your CPR training doesn't make you any safer - it makes the people around you safer. Similarly, their training makes you safer.
  4. Now look at the list, asking yourself if any of the people with stars are people you spend any appreciable time with - alone. It might be your spouse. It might be someone you go fishing with, or play golf or tennis with.

Question: What's the difference between #1.neither you nor your spouse having been trained in CPR and #2. both of you playing Russian Roulette, but with the revolver pointed at each other's head?

Answer: Not a heck of a lot.

The bottom line is "2013 would be a really good time to get all your family, friends, and acquaintances trained in CPR." Taking care of that this month would be even better!
