I’ve oftentimes compared effective management of innovative projects to a healthy human spine. The spine has to be able to bend and stretch to meet the needs of the body, but also fix itself in a steady position when necessary. The spinal column houses your nervous system. Your nervous system controls and coordinates all the functions of your body. I don’t have a degree in human anatomy, but I’m positive that the spine is important.
For the past couple weeks, I’ve been visiting a chiropractor for adjustments. He reckons I have phase 1 vertebral subluxation.
In simplest terms, a subluxation is when one or more of the bones of your spine move out of position and create pressure on, or irritate spinal nerves. This pressure or irritation on the nerves then causes those nerves to malfunction and interfere with the signals traveling over those nerves. If you interfere with the signals traveling over nerves, parts of your body will not get the proper nerve messages and will not be able to function at 100% of their innate abilities.
If you’re trying to innovate and getting nowhere, maybe you (or your workplace) has innovation subluxation! My advice? Find someone to give you an adjustment, shake things up and release some gases. You’ll feel better, and be able to get things done.
One last note, as with normal chiropractic care, regular adjustments bring better results.
