As the moniker suggests, the well-known author Brian Tracy compares goal setting with the routine process of filing a flight plan which all airline pilots are required to do.
As flight plans are filed they cover many, if not all, the areas one may encounter in the journey to a destination by air. In-flight, we may encounter an emergency or a crisis, turbulence, failure, time delays, headwinds, rerouting, endurance, and even failure in reaching a destination that we have set out. Similarly, while in pursuit of our goals, we may encounter some of the very same obstacles.
Tracy explains how simply writing a plan increases the likelihood of success. Each chapter highlights the areas of planning and execution, and is a manual of sorts guiding you to properly design a plan and check it along the way.
The book highlights that once you have chosen where you want to go, you must then work towards your goal by preparing, taking action, and planning for any challenges while making course corrections along the way, just as an aircraft does.
In the attainment of our own goals we always expect that same uneventful experience. Most experienced pilots know full well that a crisis may be around the corner and the only way to avert it is to be prepared for it. Tracy highlights that this must be the same mindset that is required to ensure that we stay on track. Failure to draw out a plan may result in the eventual arrival at an unintended outcome, or worse, a full blown disaster.
This is a hugely powerful statement. Very early on in the book Tracy gets right to the point. He alludes to the fact that there is an unmistakable hallmark of success, which is, that when we decide to do something and take action we are embarking on a successful journey.
He also reminds us that we are capable. If we take a menial task such as making a sandwich, we rarely fail in putting the ingredients together. The list is endless and the execution is seamless. By planning and having everything in place, should an accident arise, we may mitigate the loss or change and also prepare for success. The fact that we have the ability to achieve absolutely anything is true. Once you break down the steps, as in making a sandwich, everything becomes clear.
The major stumbling block is when we fail to realize that each and every step requires a great deal of preparation and effort. In order to accomplish the difficult things in life, break it down into baby steps. Essentially, the book presents itself as a guide on how to simply plan and prepare for any goal. The most obvious analogy is pointed out by using this Gem. By failing to use all the power necessary in taking off, an aircraft would never take off.
Certainly, this is subjective in life, and by doing so Brian Tracy points out the difference. Essentially, the flight plan calls for a series of events that need to take place in succession for a flight to be properly executed. A huge part of this Gem properly illustrates, partially through the use of the flight analogy, that in order to get going one often needs to harvest huge amounts of energy or be forever stuck never taking off.
Next time you are working on a specific goal, ask yourself before you start: Am I all in? The message of the book is that you need to spend every ounce of energy to ensure you have planned out your journey by knowing where you want to go and how you are going to get there.
It really hits home that you must go after what you want and go at it with full force. The book allows you to properly visualize the end of the flight after having reached your destination. If you are looking to get somewhere, whether in your personal life, business life, or simply in order to reach an objective that you desire, this is the book for you. Tracy illustrates that while being prepared for anything you still risk not being prepared for the unknown, and he directs the reader to believe that chance favours the prepared mind and that the key to victory is to plan for turbulence and to persist until you succeed.
