Good advice from a "Spaceman"

Chris Hadfield (Canadian Astronaut and former commander of the Space Station) recently spoke at a local (KLO) Middle School here in Kelowna.

One point he made that really resonated with me was... "you can make some big decisions, but it's the little decisions you make every day that turn you into who you become"

Said by a man who was inspired by the Apollo moon landing on TV, went on to earn an engineering degree at Royal Military College, become a test pilot for the Canadian Armed Forces, obtain his masters degree in Aviation Systems... and then be accepted into the Canadian Astronaut program and eventually command the International Space Station... 

At 54 he recently retired.

Sounds like he knows what he's talking about.... it'll be interesting to see what Chris does in his retirement!!
