Under Construction…

Under Construction: two words… One simple expression… And, yet, it so accurately applies to so many different elements of our lives.

My www.mitchschneidersworld.com website is under construction. Updated and revised to handle the monthly columns I’ve written for the repair community for more than thirty-five years.

The Automotive Service Management Series I wrote is under construction as I work on the original content to accommodate a new generation of readers. There will be fewer volumes filled with better and more timely information designed to complement the material I folded into Misfire: What to Do When Things Aren’t Running on All Cylinders.

I’ve almost completed revising the original content found in Total Customer Relationship Management for the first handbook. And, currently building the new chapters that are under construction.

My body is pretty much under construction as I write this, still trying to reconcile itself to the introduction of a stranger’s stem cells.

It would be safe to say that unless we’ve allowed ourselves to become stagnant—paralyzed—we’re all under construction to one degree or another. Trying desperately to get from where we are to where we know we need to be.

It would seem a little dissatisfaction. A modicum of anxiety. A bit of frustration with your current reality can be healthy if keeps you moving in the right direction. If it keeps you on track and falling forward.

The price of stasis is stagnation. Equilibrium isn’t just a matter of remaining inactive. It is a measure of just how far behind you are falling. Working hard to repair, rebuild, reposition, or reinvent yourself isn’t necessarily a sign something is broken. It’s a measure of how hard you are working to make it better!
