Few engines can run full throttle very long!
Last Update: January 22, 2021
Pilots reduce power after take-off!
- Most airplane engine failures occur at the first power change...
- That's why we wait until we are sure we have airspeed and altitude
- Few, if any engines can maintain full power for long periods of time...
- Too much pressure... wear and tear.
- Pull back the throttle and slow down... pressure to succeed... to rank...
- You cannot run full speed every day.
- The older I get, the more I learn this lesson...
- I no longer strive for success, rank, or recognition.
- It's fine if you're starting out, but don't try to keep the speed up.
Remember, it's a marathon, not a sprint!
- Rank and position are important, but health and well-being are more important.
- There was a time I worked 365/7... pushing, running... "Get 'er done!"
- Then I landed in the hospital with a heart attack...
- The doctor told me to slow down or die... It took a while longer before I learned.
This quote from Doug King caught my eye:
"Learn to pause... or nothing worthwhile will catch up to you."
Gotta love it... smell the roses.
