5 lessons from geese
5 Lessons From Geese

  • Geese fly in formation to create lift. 70% more efficient together than alone.

  • When a goose drops out of formation, it feels drag, stimulating it to get back in formation.

  • The lead goose, when fatigued, drops back in formation to be aided by the others and regain strength.

  • Geese in the rear, honk to encourage leaders to keep up speed.

  • When a goose falls to the ground, two others drop out to aid it until it can fly again.


  • “It is not the critic who counts, not the man who points out how the strong man stumbled, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena: whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs and comes short again and again; who knows the great enthusiasm, the great devotions, and spends himself in a worthy cause; who at best knows, in the end, the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring…so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat.”

    • Theodore Roosevelt


Arrivederci go irish
ARRIVEDERCI out how the strong man stumbled, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena: whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs and comes short again and again; who knows the great enthusiasm, the great devotions, and spends himself in a worthy cause; who at best knows, in the end, the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring…so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat.”GO IRISH!!!
