Wow what a conversation. It’s fascinating hearing former combat helicopter pilot & squadron leader, Sarah Furness, share her experience and learnings around how we can all fly higher. There are some great tips and reminders of how we can improve the way we work, starting with understanding our own minds.
Sarah tells us that we are never too old to learn, we can always train our brain. The conversation delves into some interesting topics including stress, focus, stretch and flow. Sarah tells us about Eustress which refers to positive stress, the opposite of distress. If we can stretch ourselves, we’re likely to find our flow to operate at our optimum state.
In a hectic work life of constant competing priorities, Sarah talks about the importance of unitask. We are not built to manage multiple tasks. Focus on one thing at a time and do it well.
“Focus on one thing – Fly the helicopter”
We may have mentioned a few times that Sarah is a best-selling author. You can find her book on Amazon here: Fly Higher: Train your mind to feel as strong as you look eBook : Furness, Sarah: Amazon.co.uk: Books
