A Million Pounds

Several years ago I was in a class where it was taught that to get the space shuttle off the ground it takes (something like, my number could be wrong) a million pounds of pressure . . .

. . . but once it's in orbit, it takes only a little puff of air here and there to keep it where it needs to be.

The analogy was then made that to get some things we're involved with running really well, it takes a million pounds of enthusiasm and work, but once it's in the air, it just runs.

Something I've been thinking about recently and just thought I would share.

  1. Hmmmmm...makes me think of a bunch of things in my life. Vanguard for one. I felt like it was pulling teeth the first couple years to communicate vision, and now, for me anyway :), it seems to be going so much more smoothly.

    Well, maybe that's because you guys are doing all the work now...
