One lesson learned, One Life…
Routines are the pulse of life
Like a heartbeat, they help the nutrients flow through your life to keep you healthy.
I like my routines. They set a tempo and maintain a powerful rhythm – like the bass line through a music composition. It is not surprising that music and dance help to keep rhythm. It might be the reason why they have had such a huge importance across civilizations. It’s perhaps also the reason why the diversity of music and dance are banned from some extreme ideologies.
One Lesson Learned a Day

Monday – Patience and Humility
Tout vient à point à qui sait attendre
After years of training and drilling, most pilots aim to be part of the action and to “finally” do the ultimate job we chose in the first place. It’s the type of career choice that you dedicate yourself to over a lifetime, knowing you want to play a part in keeping the world safe. We all train for that, but ultimately not all of us end up having the opportunity to put our training into action.
Let’s be excessive. Sometimes I can be a bit Obsessive Compulsive… but I know how to pace myself.
Yes, I have to admit that I love to be organized. Either in my job or in my life I love a sense of order, cleanliness, simplicity and easy access to the information or objects that I need. It helps me to get things done and to stay focused. I love art and beauty too and the act of creation sometimes has to be messy.
Being organized is a full time job. It easily can become burdensome, and requires dedication and hard work. You can’t be lazy! To master the art, you have to rapidly learn the skills required or you’ll quickly get overwhelmed. And at some point, you have to learn to delegate even if you fear that the end result won’t necessarily be as well executed as that you could achieve if you did it yourself. The important thing is to have confidence in your ability to teach someone the proper and expected way to do the task, and to understand that people can learn – and surpass – your expectations.
