As a kid growing up, there were a few careers that I dreamed of. Top of that list? Air force pilot. What could be cooler than flying an F16? In this episode, I get the change to talk with Capt. Rob “Waldo” Waldman, on how he became a pilot. Waldo explains how he pursued his dream, committed himself to becoming excellent and dealt with many challenges. Life wasn’t so easy for Waldo. Three years into his military career, due to a scuba diving accident, he suffered from extreme claustrophobia. While that may have lead others to quit the service, Waldo kept flying. Waldo shares with us how he overcame his fear, and recommitted himself to excellence. His tips, insights and strategies apply to military and civilian alike.
