The clock and the compass

The clock represents our commitments, appointments, schedules, goals, activities–what we do with, and how we manage our time. The compass represents our vision, values, principles, mission, conscience, direction–what we feel is important and how we lead our lives.

The struggle comes when we sense a gap between the clock and compass– when what we do doesn’t contribute to what is most important in our lives.
