Oil change places have a great selling point, they will check X amount of things on your car for one price. It sounds invasive. It sounds like they’ll take the whole thing apart and put it back together. We feel pretty safe because they will check x amount of things.
The rub is, when they check x amount of things, that means it may cost me more money. It may cost me a fuel filter or windshield wiper, but that’s o.k. if I really need them. Sometimes I say no, but it always cost me later if I do.
Today I’d like to offer you a free youth meeting diagnostic tool. This resource is broken into three categories, People, Program, and Personal. This list has helped me reflect on what’s important (people), what I can get better at (program), and how to develop myself (personal). If you’re interested, sign up for my newsletter and download the pdf here.
