I am sure most of us have been in a taxi cab before. If you are like me there have been times when you have been sitting in traffic just watching the meter just keep running. You are in the back seat just watching the dollars add up. I really hate that. It just seems like a total waste of money and there is nothing you can do about it.
Don’t you wish the cab driver would turn the meter off when you are sitting in traffic not moving? That would be awesome. But that would never happen. Our lives are just like the cab sitting in traffic, whether or not we are moving towards our destination which are our goals, ambitions, or purpose the meter/time is still running. If we are not moving towards these things, just like the taxi cab driver doesn’t care, time doesn’t care what we do with it either, it just keeps moving also.
So today, I am choosing to not let the meter keep running while I sit in traffic, I am going to get out of the cab, tell the driver to take an alternate route, or never get in the cab to begin with. I am not going to let another day go by that I am not working towards my purpose and I suggest you do the same.
