Default Lessons that Geese Provide For Life

Lessons that Geese Provide For Life:
(Author Unknown)

- As each bird flaps its wings, it creates an 'uplift' for the birds following it. By flying in a "V" formation, the whole flock adds 71% more flying range than if each bird flew alone.

The Lesson: People who share both common direction and sense of community can get where they are going quicker and easier when they travel on the thrust of one another.

- Whenever a goose falls out of formation, it suddenly feels the drag and resistance of trying to fly alone, and quickly gets back into formation to take advantage of the 'lifting power' of the bird immediately in front.

The Lesson: Stay with those who are heading in the right direction.

- When the lead goose gets tired, it rotates back into the formation and another goose flies at the point position.

The Lesson: Take turns with the hard tasks and share leadership with each other!

- The geese in formation honk from behind to encourage those up front to keep up their speed.

The Lesson: Be an encourager to those in front!

- When a goose gets sick, wounded or shot down, two geese drop out of formation and follow him down to help and protect him. They stay with him until he is either able to fly or dies. Then they launch out on their own, with another formation or to catch up with the flock.

The Lesson: Support and stand by one another!
