We can’t hope to go far if our engine room is in disorder. Big problems usually start out as small problems, so it’s best to take care of the big while they are small. It’s best to keep your bearings greased and the engine running smoothly. No one wants to be dead in the water but that sometime happens. When you’re adrift, under no power, helpless to control where you are going and at the mercy of the winds and the current, that doesn’t make for a pleasant voyage, a voyage where we get carried to somewhere we don’t want to be.
