As I was answering a coaching student’s post on my Reclaim your life program, I had an insight.

Life doesn’t work like an automobile. Life is a lot more like kayaking.
The way you adjust your direction is with tiny shifts of your paddle… no big moves are effective. Continue reading “Does life behave like a kayak or an automobile?”
