    An early lesson in self-reliance

    Chesley B. Sullenberger’s father was a self-reliant individual, often taking on various tasks around the house from carpentry to wiring and roofing. This sense of self-sufficiency was imparted to his children, teaching them not just to be independent but also the value of precision and diligence. A particular lesson that left a mark was when Sullenberger mistakenly cut a piece of wood too short. His father's advice, “Measure twice, cut once,” highlighted the importance of thoroughness and the irreversible nature of certain actions.

    From a young age, Sullenberger found satisfaction in seeing tangible results. Whether it was mowing the lawn or helping his father put shingles on the family home’s roof, the pleasure derived from accomplishing tasks and marking progress was evident. Half-mowed lawns acted as clear indicators of work done and the amount remaining. This appreciation for measurable outcomes and the joy of completion is reflective of a goal-oriented mindset.

    Growing up in the 1960s, Sullenberger had clarity about his future aspirations. He envisioned a life in the military followed by a career as a commercial pilot. Even as an earnest and serious young boy, he exhibited a heightened sense of self-awareness, recognizing both his strengths and imperfections. His writings from eighth grade provide a glimpse into his character. He acknowledged his good habits, like politeness, which he credited to his upbringing, and was candid about his shortcomings, like impatience and perfectionism. The feedback from his teacher, a simple affirmation that he was “doing fine,” was reflective of an era where sparse words of encouragement were the norm. This formative feedback and the societal expectations of the time shaped his adult disposition – regimented, self-demanding, and perfectionist, attributes he believed contributed to his proficiency as a pilot.

    Sullenberger's writings also shed light on his familial bonds. He expressed pride in his sister, despite occasional differences, and profound appreciation for his mother’s ceaseless care. His father stood as a beacon of wisdom, guiding him, imparting lessons, and enabling him to learn from his errors. These relationships laid the foundation for his values and principles.

    Despite the imperfect nature of his home, with slanted floors and a lack of financial focus, Sullenberger cherished his upbringing. The house his grandfather built became more than just walls and roofs; it was a repository of memories, lessons, and familial love. He recognized the fortune of growing up in such an environment, nurtured by parents who, in their own unique ways, instilled invaluable life lessons.

    Ich bin begeistert. Ich liebe Bücher aber durch zwei kleine Kinder komme ich einfach nicht zum Lesen. Und ja, viele Bücher haben viel bla bla und die Quintessenz ist eigentlich ein Bruchteil.

    Genau dafür ist Blinkist total genial! Es wird auf das Wesentliche reduziert, die Blinks sind gut verständlich, gut zusammengefasst und auch hörbar! Das ist super. 80 Euro für ein ganzes Jahr klingt viel, aber dafür unbegrenzt Zugriff auf 3000 Bücher. Und dieses Wissen und die Zeitersparnis ist unbezahlbar.

    Extrem empfehlenswert. Statt sinnlos im Facebook zu scrollen höre ich jetzt täglich zwischen 3-4 "Bücher". Bei manchen wird schnelle klar, dass der Kauf unnötig ist, da schon das wichtigste zusammen gefasst wurde..bei anderen macht es Lust doch das Buch selbständig zu lesen. Wirklich toll
