Have you ever noticed that airplanes fly crooked?
At first glance it seems like those shiny tubes in the sky are heading toward their destination. But look closer. While flying a straight path, the nose of the plane points at a slight angle into the wind. It’s called Wind Correction.
It’s the same thing that happens when you set a Goal and head toward your destination. While you would prefer the straight path, you will likely run into winds that want to push you off course.
Your spouse doesn’t agree with your plans. Your boss demands too many hours. Your kids, friends, and responsibilities keep pushing you further away from your dreams.
Is it time for you to start thinking like a pilot?
Never set Goals without factoring in the winds that will attempt to push you off course. Keep an eye on your final destination.
