I love flying so much, it's a passion, a profession and a life style but sometimes you're flying so much you hardly have the time to do other things or engage in self-development activities. So many times, I begin a course and can't complete it because of flying. For those in the private jet sector, there's a way around it. Unlike commercial flying, there's a return leg for every destination but for charter, almost every return leg is empty. Sometimes even as far as a return leg of over 5hours. What then do you do with the time? You can't surf the net/browse so an online course is impossible (even if the aircraft is equipped with WiFi, it's so expensive it's definitely not for you), you most times can't make calls, you can't go to the market, hangout or go to a physical class (when you're not a winch or ghost🙄)but you can read a book.
Yes, this is definitely the best time to read that book. The power of books is beyond explanation, every time you pick a new "positive" book to read, there's a new thing to learn.

Meaning, that paid time in the sky, can also be a growth time for you. After a while you realise that the greatest disservice you can do to yourself (and humanity) is remaining stagnant. Keep doing your little here and there, in the end, it will all add up. - 7 months ago
