For the last couple of months, I have been struggling to find a new hobby or activity for me to do each week. I believe that I need to focus on learning and growing to ensure that my life continues to move forward. I have gone back to college a few times to study classes that interest me, attended seminars on leadership, and have done a correspondence course or two.
But this time I wanted to do something different that was outside of the scope of running a business. Instead of looking to increase my book smarts, I wanted to learn a new skill just for the sake of learning it – not just for profit.
Out of all the things I wanted to learn on my bucket list, flying a plane was the one that was most exciting. Since I was a child I have dreamed of soaring up with the birds, and for the first time in my life I had the financial means to make it happen.
Instead of procrastinating, I enrolled myself in some flying lessons with Aeros, one of the leading flight training academies in the world. I will be working towards my private pilots licence so that I will be able to fly on my own in the future.
While I don’t know what kind of doors my pilot licence will open for me, I know one thing for sure – I will be living a dream that I have had since I was a child, and that feels great!
