    I am good in an emergency. After hearing athletes describe what it feels like to be in The Zone, I feel sure that is what happens to me when a "real time decisions are going to matter, and if you don't do the right thing serious injury (or worse) could happen" crisis presents itself to me, I go into The Zone. I take over and start barking orders at people. The amazing thing is they all listen and do exactly as I say.

    Not at all amazing. Most people freeze or bolt. You snap them to attention. It's a gift. You would assume most people in medicine have this. They don't.

    I have a really nice way of saying that: "In the face of increasingly complex variables people revert to what they know...even if what they know is wrong". I used this slide today.
