''Call to A Mechanic''

"I'm moving oh, so slowly...what on earth am I to do?
Can't figure out what's wrong," she said, "That's why I've come to you."

"I know just how you feel," I said. "Been down that road before.
Just creeping down the highway though the pedal's to the floor

Let's take a look and see if we can't figure out what's wrong
We'll have you up to speed and on your way before too long

I see you've got a clear idea exactly where your bound
I see you've got the spark that starts the engine turning 'round

I see you've got the map you need that shows how to get there
I see you've got the gas it takes to keep you in high gear

I see you've got a spare along in case some things go flat
And alternate directions? Wow! Most people don't do that

You've even got some friends along to guide you and advise
to help you see what's on the road and be each others' eyes

"Seems everything's in place," I said. "You've got all that it takes
Now take your foot up off the gas...and now release the brakes!"

One unique thing I've discovered is that when things seem to be dragging, when a business project for instance isn't generating the interest or sales that I know it should, that it's often NOT due to a lack of vision, commitment, energy, plan or level of activity, but simply something that exists in the basic groundwork or in another area of my life that I need to fix or release.

So whenever, I encounter that feeling that things should be moving more quickly, I ask (and I encourage you to do the same): "What have I missed? What do I need to put in place? What preliminary step have I overlooked? Or who and what do I need to let go?" It could be a simple thing like a misspelling in a book or a broken link on a website that I didn't catch. Or it might be a more complicated thing like letting go of a person or situation that is holding me back. It may often seem unrelated to the business matter at hand. But the universe is a well-oiled machine that operates on wholistic principles, and so will often require that a seemingly insignificant part or piece be in place in order to operate effectively and efficiently.

The moment I find that thing, and (often the instant) I fix it or give it up, things seem to lurch forward and get back on track.

That simple thing can be like a parking brake that slows the forward motion of the project and of your life! Remember, the goals you set for yourself in any area of your life require changes in every area in order to manifest. So, if your projects are grinding to a crawl, look around and fix anything and everything you can in your life and watch what happens! Zoom. Zoom.
