Monica and I were out walking and up ahead I spied
an unleashed dog roaming about. The dog was quite a bit bigger that our 15 pound
Lhasa Apso so I quickly changed our morning route. Have you ever thought about
how often we make course corrections in our life? For example I had planned on
running more this year and cycling less; however I noticed my knees were hurting
when I increased my running training. Once I started spinning and riding again
while running less my knees felt better. I made a simple course correction.
Itís easy to make a small course correction
especially when havenít invested a lot of time or money along the way. Last
weekend Kellyís friend Danielle was visiting and shared with us that by
changing her college major and attending a different school she would lose about
two years worth of credits. Thatís a costly course correction. On the other
hand, what if she had not changed? What would it cost to spend a lifetime in a
field that she wasnít passionate about? I suppose the earlier you notice that
you need to change the better.
the interesting thing about life: most of it is not permanent. We have so many
opportunities to change. Thatís great news! It means for the most part if
there is something I am not happy about, I have the power to make a difference.
All that is required is that we look; take a look at the course we are on, where
itís headed and consistently monitor our direction. How about you, have you
monitored your course lately?
time is limited, so donít waste it living someone elseís life. Donít be
trapped by dogma - which is living with the results of other peopleís
thinking. Donít let the noise of otherís opinions drown out your own inner
voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition.
