Today my father-in-law did his very best to retro-fit big training wheels on a small bike for our three year old. Despite his best efforts, the training wheels had a distinct tilt to them. No matter how hard our daughter tried, the bike leaned to one side and she leaned with it. Finally, Simka got off the bike and said, “It is just not balanced”. This experience reminded me of the many times I have tried to push through something only to realize that it was the lack of balance that was impeding my progress.
When have you found yourself off-balance? What did you do next?
