The First Fifteen Minutes

Mr. Wilson's Driver Education class paid particular attention to his lecture, "Six days of hot summer sun dried the region. Un-watered grass turned from bright green to brown. The sun baked the roads as the highway hummed with traffic. Rain clouds rolled in from the west and the July forecast changed from sunny and hot to wet and rainy. The first fifteen minutes is the hardest to navigate. In those first fifteen minutes, rainwater will mix with the hot oil and grease on the road; this is when it's deceivingly treacherous. Slick roads, cars slowing down, limited visibility. When this happens, it's important to keep your eyes on the road, grab the wheel with both hands and anticipate what's ahead. The last thing you should do is brake hard. Instead, if you need to, take your foot off the accelerator and slow down. After a while, the water on pavement isn't so bad, but the first fifteen minutes is the most precarious."

As you direct your life and start new dreams, goals and objectives, the first deluge will happen. "The first fifteen minutes is the hardest to navigate." Your slippery path, slowdowns and limited visibility will cause commotion. Even well-established dreams can run into difficulties. When this happens, it's important to keep your eyes on the road, grab the wheel with both hands and anticipate what's ahead. The last thing you should do is brake hard. Instead, if you need to, take your foot off the accelerator and slow down. In other words, stay after it. Keep moving forward. Soon the path will clear up and you can navigate to your destination.
