"Push The Truck"

This piece is about momentum in life. Before the days of power steering, there was a saying that "it's easier to steer a moving truck".

 

If you've ever driven a car without power steering, you'll know that it's a bear to turn the steering wheel when at a stand-still, but once you pick up momentum, you can easily steer the car whichever way you want to go.

I think the same is true for life. If you feel stuck in your ways doing the same thing day-in-day-out, changing your trajectory can feel impossible; but once you take that first step in a new direction, and then another, sooner or later your new path will become the habit, and it will feel as though that's the way things have been all along. 

All it takes is that initial effort of breaking routine and starting something new. If you're feeling stuck, PUSH THE TRUCK.
