6 things pilots can teach you about running a small business:

1. Pilots are always learning. They don’t “wing it” (pun very much intended), and have an extremely broad knowledge, wide enough to cover practically anything they will ever be likely to need in flying.

2. They practice what they learn, to the point where it’s completely fluent, even under the pressure of two or three combined hazards happening at once.

3. Sometimes you need to focus on where you want to go. And sometimes you need to concentrate on avoiding something you don’t want to happen.

4. Some things you do are more valuable than others. “How to avoid killing all passengers on board by nosediving into the runway” is given a little more weight than “when to turn on the overhead seatbelt signs”.

5. Checklists are mandatory, before you leave the ground, send that email, or deliver that pitch.

6. When it comes to your skills and knowledge, it’s a case of “use it, or lose it” – That’s why pilots will jump in the simulator at any given chance, even decades after earning their wings.

ps. For those interested in learning to fly, here are some basic flying rules:
1. Try to stay in the middle of the air.
2. Do not go near the edges of it.
3. The edges of the air can be recognized by the appearance of ground, buildings, sea, trees and interstellar space. It is much more difficult to fly there.

Could you grow your business by just 1% this week? That doesn’t sound too hard, does it? Well, if you could grow your business by just 1% every week, after 69 weeks, you’d have DOUBLED your business!
