Every year as the weather becomes colder and the trees begin to shed their leaves, we will hear the familiar sounds of our feathered friends begin their journey south for the winter. As you look to the sky and watch the Vee formation of migrating geese, you may wonder, "Why do they fly like that?"|
The advantage of flying in the Vee formation is what pilots call, 'wingtip vortex'. As each member of the formation pushes the air beneath their wings downward, it forces some of the air surrounding the bird upward, creating an up wash beyond the wing tips. It is this up wash that forms a collective, 'up current', that reduces the lifting power needed by each member. The result is that the flock saves valuable energy and maintains the momentum needed to endure the long journey to the southern regions. It is said that this collective effort allows the flock to travel 70% further and longer than if a member were to attempt the flight on its own. It also ensures the success rate of each member surviving the perilous journey and arriving safely at its destination.
This advantage effectivly illustrates the collaborative relationship between, 'The Coach' and you. Regardless of the situation, problem, circumstance or intended goal, 'The Coach' and you collectively create an inspiring vortex, that will save time and energy, while maintaining the momentum needed to ensure your success.
The Wisdom of Flying Geese
Basic Truth #1- People who share a common direction and sense of community can get where they are going quicker and easier because they are traveling on the thrust of one another.
Whenever a goose falls out of formation, it suddenly feels the drag and resistance of trying to go it alone and quickly gets back into formation to take advantage of the lifting power of the bird immediately in front.
Basic Truth #2- Success is hard work and it requires effort. Every one profits when they share the work load.
When the lead goose gets tired, he rotates back in the wing and another goose flies point.
Basic Truth #2- We need to be careful what we say to eachother.
When you hear the geese honk while in formation, they are encouraging those up front.
Final Truth- If we have the sense of Geese, we will stand by each other, protect one another and sometimes make new friends along the way.
When a goose gets sick, or is wounded by gunshot, and falls out, two geese fall out of formation and follow him down to help and protect him. They stay with him until he is either able to fly or until he is dead, and then they launch out on their own or with another formation until they catch up with their group.
