Felix Baumgartner

So, it’s Monday, and whether you love or hate your job there’s no doubt that after a weekend of well deserved R&R, Monday is the least inspiring day of the week. Well, maybe not this Monday. If, like most of the world, you tuned into Felix Baumgartner’s space jump yesterday, you won’t be surprised to find out that it took five years of planning and training, along with two delays and the threat of an aborted mission due to a faulty visor, but despite all the odds, the 43-year-old daredevil finally took the plunge and broke more world records than you can shake a neatly packed parachute at. So, don’t worry about the deadline that you’re going to miss or that meeting where your skirt was tucked into your pants because with dedication and determination, anything is possible even when there are some bumps along the way.

First, the jump:

Then the helicopter:


Then the landing:


Then the celebration:
