Sometimes when you are driving for a while on a straight, long road, you can fall into the trance-like state referred to as “Highway Hypnosis”. The road begins to blur. Your eyes feel heavy. Your brain is on auto pilot. You begin to feel like you are on the edge of sleep. It can be pretty scary. In the above scenario, the ticket to success is a large cup of coffee and a nap. But the same sort of phenomenon can also occur after working for decades in the same career, performing the same tasks, day in, day out, your eyes beginning to glaze over with each passing workday.

When things seem to be moving at 100 miles per hour, how do you maintain your career lane? Share your thoughts in the comments! And don’t forget to link, share and subscribe if you like what you hear.
