We just had a hot air balloon festival near where I live. And it reminded me of a movie I saw that was based on James Glassier, a British astronomer and meteorologist. And, by all accounts, he was extremely focused on weather. So much that he took to the skies in hot air balloons. And he insisted on taking heavy scientific instruments with him on those flights. Because he wanted to use them to complete his observations such as measuring the chemical composition of the air and its temperature and pressure.
There’s even a movie about Glaisher, hot air balloons, and a world record.
If you haven’t seen “The Aeronauts” I recommend it. And before you do, you should know it’s a made up version of what really happened. Because the movie has Glaisher and a woman named Amelia Wren making the flight. But the real flight included Henry Tracey Coxwell as co-pilot. And I guess the moviemakers changed it to add romance and more thrills.
Either way you look at it, the flight they took broke the world record for altitude back on September 5, 1862. 158 years ago.
But one thing that really stood out, in the movie, was how focused James Glaisher was on getting his instruments into the upper atmosphere. He had theories about how to predict the weather. And it became like an obsessive mission for him. He wouldn’t let anything or anyone stand in the way of his progress.
And you know what, that’s the key to success.
You gotta have a mission.
But where do you start? And what do you do once you figure out your mission? Gosh, if there were only some way…a system…you could follow to help you get there faster. Wouldn’t that be great? Because it sure would save a lot of time and headaches of trying to start from scratch. Right? Oh wait…
My RondaReady business coach business management system has that. Wow, can’t believe I didn’t already think of that. Because I love helping go-getters and risk takers set up and pursue their mission. Not to mention vision and values…although I just did.
So, are you ready to focus like ol’ James Glaisher, the Aeronaut? And are you ready to stop blowing up hot air balloons? Then you’re really ready to be the highly organized CEO of your business and jump into the RondaReady System. Because I truly do wanna help you…
