Haynes on fulfilling a mission: The biggest secret I can offer to you, and this is how I manage, is that I like to keep it very simple. The trick is to come up [with] an even smaller essence of what your touch zone is going to be or what star you’re going to follow. When you do that, it becomes so much easier to communicate that. It allows you to constantly be checking and testing whether that fits together.
