'Did you know that an Apollo rocket is actually on course only two or three percent of the time? At least 97% of the time it takes to get from the earth to the moon, it’s off course. Put another way, for every half hour the ship is in flight, it is on course for less than sixty seconds. And it gets to the moon? How is that possible? Modern space travel is an example of a successful methodology of Networking.
We always need to be making small corrections to our journey. Those corrections will be made as we experience growth as a result of our personal development. We will be making adjustments while learning about our product or business opportunity. We will be making corrections as we follow the leaders in our organization. “Become a world-class follower”*
What keeps us motivated to stay the course? Your vision, your dream. Be willing to be constantly making course corrections and you will reach the moon. The moon of your dreams.'
Just heard a wonderful anecdote from a NASA old-timer and am posting it to check its accuracy with this exhalted group. this gento told me that "our rockets were actually on-course only 3% of the time on the earth-moon-earth trip. That is why we had a mission control."
I kinda suspect that he was oversimplifying in the intersts of a good story, but am otherwise unqualified to judge. Your opinion? -p
