Asking For Help

When I was in college I took a sociology class with a professor I liked very much. Sociology was extremely interesting to me and I think I took a lot out of that class and was able to apply it to my real life.

One of the things I learned had to do with asking for help. The professor taught that in many firehouses, they would take a new recruit and have him hold the hose while pointing full blast at something.

The power of the hoses are too great at full blast for one person to hold. So the person would flounder. Either they would call out for help or they wouldn’t succeed.

The point was that the firefighters want the people in their squad to be able to ask for help or they couldn’t count on them when they were needed to act as a group in a dangerous situation.

The trick is knowing when to ask for help.
