“Taming the Torpedo Lifestyle” -Blog #7

Anyone who has goals and means it knows how driven one can become to achieve them. In the process, it is easy to become so goal-focused that we function like a torpedo. Think of this underground weapon selected and aimed for a specific target. Wham! Get out of the way! It does not look left or right! Full steam ahead!

So, what is the metaphor here? When we shift into a heavy-duty high-powered driven mode, we move at such a rate, it is easy to miss out on anyone or anything on the left or right.

The opposite? We choose to be present to others and aware of sights, tastes, sounds, fragrances and sensory experiences around us every day. We take time for the voice within the heart.

Does a torpedo have brakes?
