No one says it’s time for a new car when things are working. We convince ourselves it’s time for a new vehicle when we have car problems.
We have a tendency to take problems and make them bigger. Creating drama in the process. And it isn’t just with cars. We do this with consumer goods, jobs and relationships. Out with the old and in with the new.
More often than not, we don’t need a new car to solve our problems (inheriting another set in the process). What we need is to recognize the scale of the problem–clarity to what the problem actually is.
You don’t need a new life but likely just need to fix a few things to get back up and running.
