Anyone who drives a manual car will tell you one of the most important things is knowing when to shift gears. Some will say to think of the gears as speed ranges, others will tell you to listen to the engine. Everyone will tell you not to burn the clutch. The clutch helps you switch gears. Many of us ignore the signs when it is time for us to switch gears in our life. We ignore the clutch of our conscience and move full speed ahead until we hit a guardrail. Heartbreak, disappointment, and anguish could have been avoided, if we only listened to the voice in our heads. Pay attention to what your inner voice tells you. Don't ignore the signs. Don't burn the clutch. Know when to switch gears.
