The young pilot flew his smaller craft alongside the bulky transport, came on the radio and said to the transport pilot, “Watch this!” Immediately the jet pilot went into a steep climb soaring up several thousand feet. He then nosed his plane down and did a series of spectacular barrel rolls. After leveling off in front of the cargo plane, he ignited his afterburners and shot across the horizon creating a loud sonic boom. Finally he returned alongside the transport and asked, “Well what did you think of that?”
The older cargo pilot said, “Very impressive.”
Puzzled, the young jet jockey asked, “What the heck did you do?”
The moral to this story – When one is young and inexperienced, speed and flash are the preferred methods to get a job done. However, when one matures and acquires wisdom, comfort and dullness are generally the best way to perform most jobs.
