What does it take to be a good surveillance operative?
“Experience—that most brutal of teachers,” said the writer C.S. Lewis. “But my God, do you learn.”
Experience is more than bullet points on a CV. Seth Godin says, “You’re not your resume. You are your work.” It’s about what you’ve seen and felt and suffered. Classes you took, books you read, fish you caught, bones you broke.
Real-life experience breeds common sense, a trait so rare, it’s like a superpower. It’s Sherlock’s watchful eye, Columbo’s skepticism, and Shakespeare’s knowledge of human nature—all, traits of a brilliant investigator.
