Adventure on the way...

hi-chris-hadfield-03815928

Have you seen the Canadian Space Agency channel on YouTube?  I’m a fan.  Chris Hadfield is an astronaut on the International Space Station and he does video blogging from the ISS.  Folks will write him asking questions about what life is like in space and he will video short few minute responses back.  Very interesting in fact!

The video below is titled, “How you can achieve your goals”.  And the particular message of this video I felt was worth sharing.  And the message can be summed up in a single quote from the video…

I decided a long time ago that I wanted to be an astronaut but I realized the odds were terrible.  So I thought, well let's head in the direction that I like.  Let's do things on the way, that if I don't make it all the way to the very impossible end of the ultimate job that I might love to do someday,  that each of the things I'm doing on the way are things that I like doing and that I would be happy to stay at.”

For my Sailors and as a Navy Sailor myself, I feel that message could not have been stated any better.
