Just before you take that next step…

“Farming looks mighty easy when your plow is a pencil and you’re a thousand miles from the corn field.” __Dwight D. Eisenhower


It is amazing how quickly we can default to autopilot and not even realize it.

We are creatures of habit and doing what is comfortable is as natural as opening our eyes when we wake up.

But settling into our comfortable routine can be like the time Sonja and I were driving back home from an unfamiliar destination. But no worries, we entered our home address on our GPS app and headed home.

It wasn’t long before I found myself driving through a cornfield on a dirt road!

The GPS got us home but I’m sure there was a better way. Which leads me to the ONE THING for today…

The ONE THING for today: Before taking that next step answer this question: “A better thing to do/say would be _____?”

If there is not an answer, then stay with the course, but if there is…then change the course…it will sure make for a smoother journey.
