Controlling of the unpredictable

In order to be prepared for the unpredictable, pilots make trials over and over again, while imagining all kinds of possible scenarios. 

This way, they are always ready to face unpleasant surprises. Just like them, managers should take into account as many negative scenarios as possible and be ready to take action whenever required.

Pilots have the possibility to gain a great deal of experience from all the checklists and tests they go through throughout their training years and they can, therefore, handle difficult situations in real life while showing self-confidence. 

Just like them, managers should feel and show self-confidence whenever they know how to deal with challenging situations, in order to reassure their team. However, one should always keep in mind that confidence should be used only as a synonym for ability.

  • Airplane pilots, boat captains and emergency response personnel use the ‘MayDay’ distress code.

Flying Changes our Mind and Body

Taking a flight creates physical and emotional changes in us, something that is now being more extensively researched. Air travel can change our mood, make us emotionally weak (more crying) or sad, and even change how our senses work.

The factors responsible for this phenomenon are the high altitude, the reduced air pressure, inadequate oxygen going in the brain and overall anxiety associated with flying.

Time Management Is Not A Solution

Most people want more done during the course of the day, feeling productive if they have checked more boxes out of their to-do list. Time management has been a fad for a long time, equating productivity with the number of hours spent working.

The way we approach time management is proving to be a vicious circle of wasting time managing time, turning it into a problem rather than a solution towards productivity.
