Automobile University

I have been listening to Zig Ziglar’ s book on CD Better than Good in the car as I have been driving.  He covers so much in that book but he mentions the Automobile University which I have heard of before. 

Zig talks about the fact that commutes to work are very long in some cases (2 hrs in some metro towns) and that time should be used to be productive.  Not on the phone or answering emails on the newest smart phone but time used to improve and build yourself. 

Zig talks about 3 things that need to be in harmony to have a better than good life.  Passion, peak performance and purpose.  When all 3 of those area overlap you will likely be using your gifts and talents to meet the worlds needs.

I am not sure that I fall into the category of better than good but I am answering the question, “How are you?” with “Better than I deserve.”  Fake it until you make it.

Faith in God is key in my life.  When I look at the times that I struggled or am struggling something else has taken the front seat and it driving my life. 

In an effort to follow a dream and not let anything stop me I participated in a world wide photo walk hosted by Scott Kelby.  There were 33,000 people around the world that took part in that walk.  Wouldn’t you know it that the image below was one of my favorites of the day.  Looks like I am being told to get out of God’s way and let my faith guide me.
