The weather in Pennsylvana has not been conducive to safe driving. A serious issue for me since I drive for a living.
Suffice it to say, everything that could've gone wrong *did* go wrong.
Until I discovered...
I've been doing my route for over a year. I was absolutely certain that I was running it as efficiently as possible. I was wrong.
Tonight I found out that the first two east-bound exits on the Pennsylvania Turnpike (from the Ohio border to the Cranberry exit) are FREE!
After a year of being locked in my own mindset, of being stuck in what I thought was the ONLY way to get from here-to-there, I found a SHORTCUT.
Utilizing the PA Turnpike's 65mph speed limit (& reliably safe road conditions) may shave 10-15 minutes off my normal running time(!).
And now I ask:
Are you locked in a particular way of thinking?
Are you absolutely sure you're doing something as well as you could be?
Are you convinced there's no way to make life better?!
Perhaps you're overlooking a shortcut that will help!
It could be as simple as:
Chilling your beverage in record time.
But - it doesn't have to be a physical shortcut!
It could even be as important as:
Asking someone for help.
If you think life is hard, you're not alone.
I think life is hard. Much harder than I was expecting.
My best friends think life is hard.
(So, trust me, you're not alone.)
Find a shortcut. It may help you get through the day.
But also - keep looking for little ways to make life better, one step at a time, one day at a time.
(Wow. This is not the way I was expecting this blog post to go. But there you are.)
These are my thoughts for today.
I'd like to hear your thoughts.
Thanks a lot. GTO
