    Erik, your podcast is a favorite of mine anyway (it’s a great “morning radio” choice for me as I get ready for the day, to put on the right mindset), but this episode was amazing!

    Hugh’s “four B’s” were simple and stunning at the same time, like a mental bolt of lightning.

    In addition, his pilot metaphors are perfect. Having flown a little myself, I completely appreciate the comparison. As in life, a plane is never moving in a straight line towards a destination, as winds, currents, and obstacles are constantly changing, but yet the pilot has to keep the destination as the goal – as the point of focus. If a pilot were to obsess about staying on a certain pre-planned line, he’d go mad. Constant adjustments must be made, always with the destination in mind, in order to reach it. Perfect metaphor for planning, goals, and the unpredictable nature of life!

    Fantastic episode! I’m a regular listener and enjoy all the shows, but this one made me say YES out loud (probably looked silly as I was driving alone, but oh well.)

    This was a terrific podcast. I simply don’t have time to listen to a podcast more than once because I subscribe to so many (maybe too many), but this episode was so good I had to listen to it again. I may listen to it one more time. It is that worth it.

    LOVE this episode! I would really benefit from seeing an example of a flight plan vs. a to-do list. I get the concept, but a concrete example would be awesome, if you’re willing to share. Learned a lot and will re-listen, for sure. Thank you!
