Take Away 31 - Safety First

The company I am working for has a great safety program. Yesterday was the start of a campaign called "360". It is designed to get us in the habit of walking all the way around our car to check for obstacles and low/flat tires before we roll to go home. Naturally, I forgot to do the 360 last night but I had to go back out after I arrived home and I spotted the big circle magnet they placed on the rear passenger side of my Buick. I get to take that magnet in this morning and claim a little safety prize!  I say "whatever it takes" to form a new habit ~ works for me.

TAKE AWAY: It's never too late to learn new things.
I hope this 360 program is going to form a life-long habit for me!


  1. That is HILARIOUS! (as long as they don't scratch your car!)

  2. This is good advice. I have a part-time job where I drive cars from auto dealerships to auction, and sometimes to other dealerships. We are instructed to walk around the car before driving off to check for low tires or fenders hanging down or whatever. I usually remember when the car I'm about to drive is older, but I have a bad habit of hopping in the car without a second thought when the car is newer. Then I feel nervous when I take off down the road and notice the warning light that a tire is low!
