Take on the Message of the Geese.

When you see geese flying along in “V” formation, you might be interested in knowing what researches have discovered about why they fly that way.

It has been learned that as each bird flaps its wings that it creates an updraft for the bird immediately following behind. By flying in a “V” formation, the whole flock adds at least 71% greater flying range then if each bird flew on its own.


People who share a common direction & sense of community spirit can get where they are going quicker & easier because they are travelling on the thrust of one another. When ever a goose falls out of formation it suddenly feels the drag and resistance of trying to go it alone & quickly gets back into formation in order to take advantage of the lifting power of the one immediately in front of it. Now if we had as much sense as the goose, we would stay in formation with those who are heading the same way we are heading.

Goose Flying HonkingWhen the lead goose gets tired, it rotates back into the wing & another takes its place. It pays to take turns at doing the hard jobs with either people or geese flying. The geese from behind honk to encourage those in front to keep up their speed, so we in the same way should encourage those in our team.

Goose Shot DownFinally when a goose gets sick , or is wounded by a shotgun and falls out of the formation, two geese fall out with it & follow ThreeGeeseFlying it down to help & protect it. They will stay with it until it either recovers & is able to fly or until it is dead. Only then do they launch out on their own or with another formation to catch up with their flock again.

If we had the same sense as the goose & practiced it, we would stand by each other through thick & thin.
