Secure your own oxygen mask first before helping others!

“If cabin pressure should change, panels above your seat will open revealing oxygen masks; reach up and pull a mask towards you. Place it over your nose and mouth, and secure with the elastic band, that can be adjusted to ensure a snug fit. The plastic bag will not fully inflate, although oxygen is flowing. Secure your own mask first before helping others”



There’s a reason on the plane, when the oxygen masks drop, they instruct you to put on your oxygen mask FIRST, before assisting others. This concept could easily extend to other areas of your life especially dealing with time and personal finance.

Yes, you can put someone else’s oxygen mask on before yours, however, it’s not very effective and you could die doing it. Besides, once you run out of oxygen, you are no help to anyone!

I need to put on my oxygen masks first before assisting others. “They” may suffer for a bit but will be better off in the long run despite how they currently feel; the wise will understand that the best thing you could do for them is not run out of “oxygen”!
