When you encounter a speed bump, how much do you really slow down? Is a three-second delay that devastating? Multiplied over several speed bumps, the delays add up. I get it – you’ve got places to go, people to see.
What if a speed bump delayed you by days, months, or even years? No matter how fast you want to get through it, you may have no control over the circumstances that force you to slow down. The faster you try to get over them, the rougher the ride in the end.
Speed bumps don’t stop forward movement completely, they alert you to potentially risky areas where adjusting your pace (or perspective) would be more effective.
Where are the bumpy areas in your life? What’s another way to view them?
