I heard a story once about a guy who put his Winnebago on cruise control and then went to the back to take a nap. Seems he confused it with automatic pilot! The story ended as expected…
How are you managing your life or business? It’s great to be “up on the wheel”, speeding forward through the obstacles and racing to the finish line. But you can’t sprint forever. Life and business are more like endurance races, and there are times to step back and establish a more realistic rhythm.
Cruise control lets you pause some tasks, but you’re still in control and better pay attention.
Auto pilot lets you really step back and have things automated. You can relax, but you also have to be ready to put your hands on the wheel at a moment’s notice.
And sometimes, the best thing to do is go to the back and take a nap…while someone else does the driving!
Guess which I’m doing for the next few days? Lots of stories to come…
