YOU CAN SET GOALS
Have you ever driven a bobcat? Well, a skid steer loader (Bobcat is a brand name). Most would say no. Imagine, if you can, sitting in this 3000 kg machine, about to slide down a hill and possibly tip over. It is a very, very scary feeling. The problem was that the path had a slope and was not safe for the machine.
I hired the machine for a few days to do some earthworks on our property. We live on a mountain side and the block is terraced and sloping. Being relatively inexperienced at driving such a machine I had overestimated my ability to achieve this goal.
Sometimes setting goals and working towards them can have some scary moments. So, what do you do? You build your own path and reset the goal. I had to construct a safe path, using the machine, to get it to where I needed it. This delayed the work but it was necessary. I reset the timeline, rather than changing the goal (either is an option).
The more I used the machine the better (and more daring 😊) I got, so my confidence level increased. I still had to build the safe path in the early stages, and that is ok for you to do, too.
