Don't forget to fly the plane...

Yep, you can tell somethin' is on my mind again....I'm gettin' all these reports and articles talkin' about what some of our competitors are doin'. You know who they are.



Apparently all kinds of things are goin' wrong for them....there seems to be an announcement a day on it....what they are gonna fix, what they're gonna change, who they are....Hmm, sounds like an identity crisis to me :)

Well for their sake, I hope they figure it out...for us, it's just not as hard...granted we are not some huge Goliath tryin' to take over the world....that's gotta take some thinkin' :)

Let me share a couple of things with you....
  • Love people
  • Be happy
  • Have fun
  • Make great coffee

Seems a little simple doesn't it? That's flying the plane....

Ya' see in flight school, when they're teachin' a pilot how to handle a crisis, when all the buzzers and alarms are goin' off in the cockpit.....they say the number one error, is the pilot begins to pay more attention to all the warnings....and they forget to fly the plane...and the plane crashes. Ouch!

So to all of our people out there makin' us great....I just wanted to say...

"Thanks! ....for keeping your flaps up, eyes on the horizon, and burnin' at full throttle :)

Great insight!

Too often we all get distracted by life, and forget to "Fly the Plane".

My local Grandville, Michigan BIGGBY just happens to be the place I go to have a cup of coffee an reconnect with my personal flight plans!

Keep Flying Bob!!

Spoken like a true pilot Bob! too many times people take there eyes off the mission at hand and they dont see how to get back on course!

It's very inspiring to hear we are headed in the right direction!

Bob, as a new pilot and a Biggby fan, I loved this post. By the way, when my almost-four-year-old says to me "Daddy, you should pick me up from school, and take me somewhere special, where they have drinks, and it starts with B... and it's called Biggby!", you know I'm in trouble. Enjoy a laugh on me... here a video of me bouncing a landing: http://www.youtube.com/my_videos#
