    born witness to partnerships and betrayals. It is in the public domain that the CEO downsized the partner’s shares, effectively knocking him out of the ‘controlling shareholders’ board, in an attempt to make the company more competitive. Although it was an effective strategy, it left the partner and friend in a precarious situation, no doubt feeling betrayed and left out.

A sense of direction and a common purpose to work toward is what a vacation, pilot, and family need to function fully and vibrantly. A vacation without some sort of planning will result in wasting the vacation time because of undecided decisions that need to be made upon arrival.
