The Allure and Danger of Autopilot

    I don’t know about you, but throughout my life I have found myself on autopilot way too often. It just seems so much easier to get stuff done when things remain consistent.
    While I’ve worked hard to become more conscious and aware about what I am doing and why, I still find it so much easier to slip back into autopilot. That is the lure of autopilot: you only slip into it when you already know the route you need to take to your destination.
    The problem, however, is that autopilot doesn’t work very well because when you are in this state of cruise control, you are watching but not always thinking. Instead of being present to what you are doing and having conscious thought about your action and place, when you are in autopilot you are simply going through the motions unaware—somewhat like a machine.

Over the last year, I've read many books searching for ideas to enhance my personal and business development.  Laura's book not only helped me consider questions I'd never thought about, but offered a series of valuable questions that helped a friend with his business mindset.  Her book isn't just for women!  My greatest discovery is that, while trying to build a business, all thoughts have been in growing, funding, thriving, and maintaining.  It never crossed my mind to think about the end game, selling or creating enough passive income to support my future exploits or enterprises.  I highly recommend this book for anyone searching for answers to their own questions.

Life Is Filled With Questions. This Book Helps You Find Answers. I've learned you can often find the right answers to the questions of life--but only if you ask the right questions. Laura Steward Atchison gives every reader a boost with her rich insights in WHAT WOULD A WISE WOMAN DO? Laura sets off on a quest to ask questions and learn the answers on life's journey and she brings the reader into the process through the carefully grafted pages of this book. The questions will help your own journey along the pathway of life. As Laura writes, "Opportunities and openings happen when and where we least expect them, walking through one door will provide options you could not see from where you were on the other side of the doorway." (page 62) Pull out a yellow highlighter as you read through these pages. You will need it for WHAT WOULD A WISE WOMAN DO? You are in for a fabulous reading experience. I recommend this book.
