Minisode Monday #58 | Chris Hadfield: Boss In Space

Welcome to Minisode Monday, where we kick off the week with something quick and actionable — to make you more magnetic and effective — that you can implement right away.

“It’s a very odd feeling to be blind, holding onto the outside of a spaceship, listening to your oxygen hiss out into the universe.” -Chris Hadfield

Commander Chris Hadfield (check out our full episode with him here) was the first Canadian to walk in space, but the experience went far from smoothly. In this Minisode Monday, he explains how he went temporarily blind but still managed to finish the task before him — and what we on Earth might learn from his ordeal.

Let’s get to it!

The Cheat Sheet:

  • Humans didn’t evolve in zero gravity; you can never overtrain for life in orbit.
  • If you can’t navigate to the bathroom in the middle of the night, imagine trying to build a robot in space without being able to see.
  • When something goes wrong, an astronaut must heed the immortal words of Douglas Adams: “Don’t panic.”
  • We could all learn from what Chris Hadfield did when he found himself blind in space. What would you do if you were in his astroboots?

He’ll tell you the only reason he’s still alive and kicking is because of his ability to talk his way into (and out of) just about any type of situation. Here at The Art of Charm, Jordan shares that experience, and the system borne as a result, with students and clients.
