There is always someone who is ready, willing, and able to take the position of look-out. It seems it is best to let them do so since they are already invested in the task and will bring zest and enthusiasm to the job. A look-out should be able to see objects near and far with ease and to be able to read general moods and attitudes from a distance, even at night or in thick weather. For look-outs are depended upon for much more than their keen eyesight and warnings or notifications of arrivals. In fact, in these days, look-outs are much more likely to be standing right beside you than at the crosstrees of a mast or at the top of a castle wall; they may sense a threat to your wallet or esteem more quickly than you do; they may perceive the presence of an anticipated arrival with enough time to let you get composed. But, most engagingly, a self-designated look-out is willing to support a single person, a group, or anything they can honestly get excited about and that is very refreshing. Just seeing a look-out at work can bring a little cheer and excitement for your own into more play or back into play. Wouldn’t it be nice to be a good example?
