I am immensely fascinated by what my drone does. As it soars high and reduces every intimidating landscape into the grand scheme of things, I appreciate how beautiful my world is.
But I am more fascinated by how it works. I’ll tell you why.
It was a few months ago I realized that the propellers were very pertinent to an aircraft flying. I did a little experiment – my drone with its engine and motors powered up and running would not fly until I attached and tightened the propellers.
I got an insight from that.
Propellers are not the biggest part of an aircraft but they are very functional. A propeller is like a “spinning wing” that produces thrust – the force that lifts an aircraft in a forward direction.
Usually, the engine motors power the propellers for it to spin, so you’d say that without the engine, the propeller and by extension, the aircraft, can’t work.
Now, I’d say even with the engine running and motors powered on, the aircraft won’t fly without the propellers.
Here’s the learning point.
If your dream, goal or a certain project is an aircraft, passion, talent, knowledge or skill builds you an engine but each ounce of diligence and consistency poured into your work produces the force that intentionally lifts your project up and forwards towards completion.
Without this, your dream will remain full of potential to fly but will not leave the ground For any sustained time.
If you want your dream or project to fly beyond mere talent and potential, you must attach and tighten the propellers of diligence and consistency.
