The sensitivity of chaotic systems to small perturbations is used to direct trajectories to a small neighborhood of stationary states of three-dimensional chaotic flows. For example, in one of the cases studied, a neighborhood which would typically take 10(10) time units to reach without control can be reached using our technique in only about 10 of the same time units.
