How disasters help us to achieve the impossible

Hope is a waking dream.

– Aristotle (384 BC – 322 BC)

The world watched as the Chilean miners were pulled up one by one.  For the first time, in a long time, we were united in hope.

But we also learned to:

  1. Understand the real problem
  2. Create a sense of urgency to resolve it
  3. Gather experts if needed to help
  4. Spare no expense; take no shortcuts
  5. Keep everyone informed
  6. Test the solution
  7. Pay it forward – President Pinera has offered to help China with their mining disaster

The miners’ survival of the ordeal provided a worldwide lesson on the strength of human resilience as 33 men were trapped 2,000 feet underground for more than two months. Chilean President Sebastian Pinera demonstrated remarkable leadership skills in a crisis.

Hopefully, an additional lesson is to improve the dangerous conditions existing in mines.

Have a great week!

    The Chilean miners’ ordeal is a miracle because not only did the miners had hope, but they had families, relationships that are so strongly attached, it was what kept them surviving. The president of Chile had a lot to do with it as he responded to the emergency immediately (ASAP) by asking for help to any nation that could provide the necessary resources.
    I believe that love for their family is what kept them in a survival mode.
