We all know the feeling…the wobbling, shaking vibration that happens when our tires get out of balance. The bumps in the road, hazards along the way, normal wear and tear cause problems for our automobiles. If left uncorrected, problems will certainly occur as these tires are wearing unevenly. It reduces their lifespan. It is not a one-time fix, but instead, something that has to happen routinely, based on use. Regardless of the amount of time that transpires, it boils down to how much they are used. In other words, every 6000 miles we must stop to maintain, in order to keep them running properly. Essentially, the more we use them, the more we must maintain them.
In our lives, we must seek to maintain our proper balance as well. Organization is not a one-time fix either. It requires regular maintenance schedules, depending on the amount of use. Our four tires that move us daily require a regular balancing, such as housecleaning, laundry, food and paperwork. We mess up the house, wear clothes, eat food and receive paperwork on a daily basis and will quickly see the effects on our home if left unbalanced. It cannot be something we attend to occasionally. Daily disciplines are necessary to establish a well-balanced management system for these household activities.
Are your systems well-calibrated? Improve your drive through life and keep yourself from running off the road to organization by rebalancing these daily tires.
