From Me to You (and to Me, Too): Avoid the Dead Zone

It’s easy to give advice. I think I find it easy to take advice too.

But for me to heed the words that I say to others? Not so easy.

So this one is for both of us.

When I drive to work, I’m often listening to a podcast or to music in my car, saved on my phone and played through the car speakers via Bluetooth.

And it always seems like as I get within a mile of the office, the quality of the podcast or song deteriorates quickly and becomes unlistenable.

I’d blame the technology… a corrupted file, I guess.

Suddenly, it dawned on my the other day: it’s not that it happens at the same time, but it happens at the same place.

I found a dead zone.

Now that I’ve got this big mystery figured out, I can avoid the dead zone or just hit pause until I’m in an alive zone again.

This seems to apply to a lot of things besides my listening habits.

Stay away from your dead zones or hit pause until you return to an alive zone again.

You can do it. You’ll be glad you did.

(And so will I!)

See you tomorrow!
