istock_000040825544_xxxsmall2When my friend Michael Hyatt told me how he used to prepare for speaking engagements, I was surprised. He told me that when he first started speaking, he prepared for gigs like a lot of people prepare for first dates: with a sense of impending doom.

Speakers: Learn to Land the Plane!

PastedGraphic-21

Author: Bobby Fisher

I have flown hundreds of times. There are certain phenomena that are common to flights. The rush of power you feel at take-off, the unsettling harshness of air turbulence and of course, the landing. You would think they would be better at it. Take-offs, pretty good, turbulence, well they can’t really do anything about it – but somehow they know it’s coming and they get you prepped. But the landing is always a crapshoot. Sometimes pretty good, usually a little unsettling, occasionally scary.
