Multi-Tasking

Not only a huge part of flight deck operations but a huge part of life. We have so many things going on that need to be accomplished that there are truly never enough hours in the day.

The only thing that keeps us motivated is something to look forward to at the end of the day.

Today is Friday and in one week special guests will be arriving from out of town to come celebrate an amazing novel for an amazing cause: aviation safety. Not only will I have friends from afar, I also have local friends who will be joining us.

The preparations for the event are ongoing despite the fact Sandy Storm tried to slow us down a bit. We are getting there, though. And we're hoping to give our guests a nice treat.

As I prepare to engage myself in auto-pilot mode, my wish for everyone: to have a great weekend and remember to breathe once in a while. Oh, and for those of you in NYC next weekend, the drawing is this week. Enter now and win! 
KEEP YOUR HEAD UP INTO THOSE SKIES!

RATING:
FIVE STARS

Looking into the eye's of the passenger profile photos of some of those on board after having read this book, I could never begin to understand what was going through their minds during their final thoughts and moments alive on aboard Air France flight 447.

Anything

Anything that annoys you is teaching you patience. Anyone who abandons you is teaching you how to stand on your own two feet. 
Anything that angers you is teaching you forgiveness and compassion. 
Anything that has power over you is teaching you how to take your power back.  
Anything you hate is teaching you unconditional love. 
Anything you fear is teaching you courage to overcome your fear. Anything out of your control is teaching you how to let go.



Life is a lesson.  Passing the exam is up to us.
Take to this Monday with the lessons above.  Do your homework no matter how long it takes.  Passing the test will be one of the greatest achievements you will ever accomplish.

With seconds to go, I was making a mad dash down the concourse.  Of course my gate had to be the last one at the end.  The chances of me making the next flight out after to the concrete jungle were growing very slim.  In the distance, I could hear a small boy ask his mom, "Why is that man running?"  Barely hearing anything over the sounds of rushing blood and adrenaline, I heard the mother explain that I was running to catch a plane.
As I ran, I flew into my subconscious and thought about the times where I wish I had ran towards something, risking everything valuable in life because of something I believe in, instead running of away from something due to fear of how bad it would impact my life.   Risks that were worth taking, that I never…
