Q: Are you trying to muscle through using only fuel?
Smooth travels - the secret is in the mix.
Gone are the days when average folks could work on their own cars. Most older cars had very straightforward engines, including a carburetor. The carburetor's whole purpose is to mix the fuel and oxygen. If the mix is off, the car runs inefficiently at best and is dead in the road at worst.
More fuel isn't always the answer. The same goes for our work. More energy or fuel won't matter if our mix is off. We all need oxygen too. Maybe that's taking a breather or just being more balanced. Whatever it is, just trying to increase our fuel of determination, creativity, or stamina won't cut it. If your mix is wrong you'll just end up lagging along or dead in the road.
