The Miles of Yesterday -- are you in the right lane?
Those grooves in the road come from many a mile well traveled by a fleet of vehicles -- Volkswagens to long-haul trucks with extra trailers attached. Of course the more those well-traveled roads are traveled, the deeper the groove.
There have been roads where the grooves were so deep, it was a real challenge to move to the other lane.
We're taught to memorize things as itty-bitty babes and memorization continues throughout our life. Memorization is an incredible tool. Can you imagine not having this tool? Not me.
I remember driving on a stretch of road where the grooves were really deep. When I attempted to move out of this lane – onto the other lane – it was all but impossible. With my persistence and diligence, (and feeling half unnerved) it occurred.
Being aware that most of the time I had chose hard rather than easy as a way of life, I pondered what could I do to ease my transition from one lane to another ... later, I learned new tires. Now that sounds like a no-brainer, huh?
Grooves (or ruts) in our minds become default.
When we realize a situation feels like we're in a rut ... we have a tendency to refer to that book of memorized responses for our answer. Do you find yourself doing the same thing again and again and wondering why nothing changes?
Ask yourself …
- Am I using the tools that will move me from where I am to my goal?
- Is it time for an update?
- What approach would make this transition a bit smoother?
A new set of tires … a no-brainer, huh! Being blonde gives me permission …
Smiles to you …
