Speeding Through Life in Default Mode
OK, so this morning, with nowhere I needed to get to in a hurry, I got a speeding ticket. It didn't even occur to me as the police car pulled around to follow me that he was coming after me.
I was on Main Avenue in my town of Fargo, and when he stopped me, he asked if I knew the speed limit. I said, "40." He said, "30. You were going 41." He proceeded to tell me that the speed limit does indeed change to 40 but not for a few blocks. As I looked up above his head, there it was: the speed limit sign clearly marked at 30.
So, as he handed me the ticket for $11, it occurred to me that this is a great lesson for all aspects of my life. Especially when I pulled away and consciously had my speedometer at 30 for the 6 blocks I had to go before it switched. Wow, did that seem slow! If my default speed in town is set at 40, how much am I missing because that default is speeding?
Best $11 I'll spend today, for sure! How about you? What might you notice if you slow down your default?
