So much of our success and drive depends on our internal compass; what we think, how we feel, what we believe about ourselves and what gremlins we breathe life into. It is, without question, ultimately up to us. But who have you appointed to the key position of ladder holder? Are they competent and dependable? Are they respected, respectful and trustworthy? Can they anticipate your needs or help you avoid potential land mines? Most important of all, do they hold your vision and mission?
Then I saw the reason—no one was holding his ladder. By himself, the painter couldn't go any further. He had done everything he could by. Dr. Chand's Aha! moment was that who is holding your ladder and what “No leader gets to the top without those below who hold the ladder.”.
It is so tempting to try and go it alone. Particularly women, who are inundated with subtle and not so subtle messages that we are not enough.
As a result, we put a lot of effort into proving everyone wrong. So we start our climb by ourselves, usually saddled with expectations and some self-doubt. The grooves 28 aid in holding the ladder to the receiving head 22 during removal and insertion of the ladder.
Receiving head 22 has slot or hole 23 for a bolt or other connector that attaches head 22 to the sliding mount In alternate embodiments, other types of strut 10 may be used, for example, a unistrut, a b-line strut and kindorf and any other type of strut or similar device.
Other ladders such as extension ladders, step ladders, collapsible ladders and other types of ladders may be held by rack 5. The ladders may be made of any type of material such as for example, fiberglass, wood, aluminum or any other material that a ladder is constructed of. Two racks 5 may be placed side-by-side and an extension ladder may be mounted on the two racks 5.
Extension ladders generally have two fixed ladders joined to create a longer ladder. Further two racks 5 may be used simultaneously to hold a collapsible ladder which has multiple pieces that nest together and lock into place when extended. In one embodiment, strut 10 may not be supplied with rack 5.
In these instances, strut 10 may be existing in the space in which racks will be installed.
Further, strut 10 may be supplied separately. In one embodiment, the fixed mount 30 is designed to be attached firmly to strut 10 by means of bolting through holes 34 in the top portion of mount The lower portion has a grooved mating surface 36 to prevent slippage with the adjustable catch head Head 30 also has a slot 38 to accommodate a bolt or other connector that secures the adjustable catch head 32 to the mount The adjustable catch 33 could be made of a variety of materials.
It could be made adjustable or non-adjustable for different types of ladders or other equipment.
It could be built to look different but still perform the same task s and operate the same. It could be fastened to the catch hose 32 in a variety of ways. In alternate embodiment, the fixed mount 30 , catch head 32 and catch 33 can be made of a variety of materials.
The can also have different attachment points for shock cord It can be made adjustable or non-adjustable for different types of ladders or other equipment. They can be constructed to look different but still perform the same task s and operate in substantially the same manner. They can be constructed to use a different type of strut.
In still other embodiments, stop 40 and stop 46 may be constructed of any size, shape and material that will provide for the necessary operation of rack 5 as described herein. In one embodiment, connecting points 35 are provided for connecting shock cord 60 or other tension maintaining device that extends on either side of strut 10 and that serve to keep shock cord 60 up and away from the moving front mount 20 thereby allowing for the area to be clear of excess slack shock cord 60 when placing the ladder upon peg section 26 and sliding the ladder. Sliding mount 20 can be made from plastic, metal or various other materials.
It can have different attachment points for shock cord It may be constructed to look different but still perform the same task s and operate substantially in the same manner. It could be designed to move using a different type of track. It may be designed to move using bearings or rollers. It can be designed to slide with applied coatings to the rail or to the mount itself. It could utilize something other than a shock cord to provide the holding tension.
The receiving head 22 , in one embodiment, has a grooved peg 26 that can be inserted into the ladder as shown in FIGS. Receiving head 22 has a hole 23 for a bolt that enables a connection to sliding mount 20 and a grooved mating surface to prevent slippage. The receiving head 22 can be made of a variety of materials, such as, for example, plastic, metal and a variety of other materials.
It can be constructed so it is adjustable or non-adjustable for different types of ladders or other equipment. It can be built to look different but still perform the same task s and operate in substantially the same manner.
By Gareth Mitchell. A good rule of thumb is to not let one's belt buckle outside the uprights. Great leaders provide great insight. How does SpaceX Falcon compare to other rockets? Ladders come in a variety of types, duty ratings and composition materials.
