Career Zingers #13: I can fly

Preparing for Flight

Preparing for Flight (David Zinger, 2017)

I was sitting at the gym and she came up to me, looked me in the eye and declared, “I can fly – you know.” Then she took off with two quick steps then leaped into the air for a flight of about 100 milliseconds and an elevation of 3 inches, landing, taking two more steps and taking flight again. The belief and the action of this enthusiastic two-year old girl was inspiring. In your career, when did you stop believing you could fly and when did you stop trying?

“Don’t believe what your eyes are telling you. All they show is limitation. Look with your understanding. Find out what you already know and you will see the way to fly.” ― Richard Bach, Jonathan Livingston Seagull

David Zinger is a 63 year old career, work, and engagement educator and coach who has never stopped flying.
