Monday Morning Boost: Regular Maintenance Required

Monday Morning Boost: Regular Maintenance Required

I love my Stihl lawn trimmer and edger. I’ve had them for years and they work like a champ.

But like every piece of equipment, they require maintenance, and regular maintenance is always better than occasional maintenance.

I know that.
I bet you know that as well.

But sometimes it’s pretty easy to overlook the importance of regular maintenance. Then sometimes the equipment breaks down.

That’s what happened with both my Stihl trimmer and edger. They are solid pieces of equipment but they need a little TLC.

So it wasn’t too surprising when both stopped working. Thus the reason for the call to Jordan Snell.

Jordan loves tinkering and has been tinkering with equipment since he was a kid. He’s using those tinkering skills to put himself through school in mechanical engineering.

He is a smart guy. He diagnosed what was wrong with my equipment–carburetors on each–and had them fixed and up running in no time.

It’s true for the engines in our vehicles. We must regularly change the oil and top off fluids to keep them running well. We must replace the brakes before they wear out. We must rotate and change the tires. We must keep the battery charged.

Regular maintenance on our vehicle doesn’t eliminate all potential breakdowns, but it does prevent many of them.

This is also true in our physical, emotional, intellectual, and spiritual lives as well.

Regularly exercising and regularly eating well work together to consistently improve our physical life.

The old adage says, “An apple a day keeps the doctor away.”

Reading a good book five minutes a day will stimulate our mind, expand our vision, and help create possibilities to help “Sharpen the Saw.”

Creating regular moments of rejuvenation will help keep our emotional life healthy and prevent stress and burnout.

Likewise, regular prayer, communion, meditation, and/or priming will help improve our spiritual life.


What do you do to regularly maintain the important aspects of your life? What practices have you found to be most effective? What is your lifehack for being consistent?

Share your ideas and let’s build each other up and take action.

Remember, the story you most consistently tell yourself will be the story to most consistently come true in your life.

Time to take the action steps to bring your story to life!

Have a great Monday! Thanks for letting me share.
