Fix Your Course to a Star

From the book ‘How to Think Like Leonardo da Vinci’ – by Michael J Gelb

‘The most carefully crafted strategies rarely work out exactly according to plan. But the best improvisers do not just “wing it” they start with a well-made plan and then adapt gracefully to changing circumstances.  You are the captain of your own ship, but you can’t control the weather. Sometimes life brings us smooth sailing; other times we get squalls, hurricanes, and tsunamis.  Leonardo counselled, “He who fixes course to a start changes not.” Fix your course to a star, and be ready to navigate through storms and around uncharted icebergs.’
