Who Packed your Parachute?

June 26, 2015

I heard a story about a war hero who did amazing things for his country.  One day while having dinner, a man he didn’t know came up to him and asked if he was that “famous” hero  He replied yes, but how did the man know?

The man explained that he had packed the parachute used in that particular occasion.

The hero went home but was haunted by the young man’s comments.   Had he acknowledged this man when he passed him before?  Why didn’t he know who packed his parachute and prepared him for the adventure?

As I heard the story, I thought, do we acknowledge those who pack our parachute?   For example, our parents who prepare us for life our assistant who prepares us for the day, the VC who took a chance and funded us , or the developer who coded that great app you sold and the list goes on.

So on this wonderful Friday, I want each of you to thank one person who ‘packed your parachute’.
