How About a Balloon Flight ? A pilot of a hot air balloon lost his orientation and lowered his flight level to about 10 m above the ground, when he saw a woman down there. He called and asked: - "Excuse me, Lady, can you tell me where I am? I promised to a friend to meet him in an hour, and I need to know my exact position." - The woman on the ground answers: - "You are in a dirigable at a height of 10 m above the ground, 40 to 41 degrees North latitude and 73 to 74 degrees West longitude." - The pilot: - "You must be an engineer". - - "You are right" says the woman, "but how did you know?" - The pilot: - "Well, everything you said is, technically, correct, but I have no idea about how to use your information, and, actually, I still don't know where I am. To be honest, you could not help me further, and all you did was to delay my flight." - The woman: - "So, you must be a CEO." - The pilot: - "True, but how do you know that?" - The woman: - "That is easy; you don't know where you are and where you are going. A big air mass has carried you to your present position. You made a promise, but you have no idea about how to keep it, and you expect the people under your level to solve your problems. As a matter of fact, you are still in the same situation as before we met, except that now, you are blaming me for your problem." - Link:
