In the six months that I have been involved with Max International I have learned much from many.  One of the core comittments from our management team is to give people the skills they need to improve all aspects of their lives including work life balance.  

Below is one example of how the Max management team holds the course at the top levels.

From Max Living:

As hard as we may try, the reality is that everyone drifts from their values and goals in life.

It's crucial that we recognize that it will happen to us, and more importantly, recognize when it does happen in order to take swift corrective action.

Airplanes have two onboard computers: the inertial navigation system, and the auto-pilot, which are referred to as "Fred" and "George."

Fred's job is to know the destination, and always know where the plane is in relation to the destination at any given moment.

George, the autopilot, controls both speed and direction. He and Fred talk to each other constantly.  

If we could hear their conversation in English, it would sound something like this.  

Fred: "George, we're off course two degrees to starboard."  

George: "Okay, Fred, I'll fix it."  

Fred: "George, we're off course three degrees to port."  

George: "Okay, Fred, I'll fix it."  

George: "O.K. Fred, I'll fix it."  

Fred: "George, we're three hundred feet too low."  

George: "O.K. Fred, I'll fix it."  

This conversation continues for the entire flight, and George and Fred bring the giant plane within a thousand yards of the runway, and within five minutes of the scheduled arrival time.  

The incredible thing is not so much the accuracy of Fred and George, but the fact that the airplane has been in error 90% of the time of its flight—and yet it still lands on target and on schedule!  

This is the power of an internal compass. The compass for Max International is the Max Code.

But what is your internal compass? What are your guiding values, ethics, principles, values and goals? What do you stand for?

Without clearly defining these, you'll never be able to course correct. In fact, you'll end up just drifting through life. As the saying goes:

"If you don't know where you're going, any road will get you there."

Take time to identify your personal "code," or compass, then let it guide you through life.
