Have you ever had a tire quite out of alignment? Perhaps you had to swerve suddenly and hit a curb – that would do it. Regardless of how your crooked tire came to be, it can really affect your ability to keep the car on the road.
The car almost seems to have a mind of its own under these circumstances. You have to grip the wheel hard and forcibly hold your car between the two lines on the road. The moment you loosen your grip, your car makes an abrupt pull to take you out of your lane. It’s a tedious drive until you make time to get it fixed.
It’s not unlike trying to be productive. There are four main categories, like your four tires, that can make or break productivity: Your goals and their management, your mindset, your health and your environment. If anyone of those “hit a curb” and go awry, then you’ll be struggling and struggling to move forward.
Think of this review as an exercise to bring you into alignment for a smoother drive.
Until next time…
