No matter how much we enjoy our jobs we sometimes get caught up in the day-to-day activities and can forget the big picture. This can even happen to astronauts. Former NASA astronaut Mike Massimino stresses the importance of trying to remember the reason why we work as hard as we do and how we are making the world a better place through our work. For security leaders, that purpose ranges from defending against bad actors to protecting internal and customer data to fending off sophisticated nation-state cyberthreats. As an astronaut, Mike found purpose in servicing and repairing the Hubble Space Telescope. Arguably the greatest scientific instrument ever built, Hubble made some of the greatest scientific discoveries in history while showing us the beauty of our universe. Contributing to great projects makes all the hard work and sacrifice worthwhile.
