A Head Lamp
A head-lamp effect
You're driving or riding at night. So you need to be able to see where you're going. This means you need headlights. A good working headlight makes your journey easier by giving you a clear picture of the landscape. It allows you to see what is in front of you and gives you the information you need to be able to get where you want to go.
You're on your journey and without warning your headlamp becomes loose and mis-aligned. It's working, but not as well as it could be. It only shows you half of what is really ahead. Your ability to reach your potential is reduced.
It's fair to say that most people crank up the jiggawatts to the bulbs. They try to compensate rather than spend the time fixing the real issue. It's not their fault. They're not mechanics and don't know every little thing about their car. This compensation makes the lights burn brighter, work harder, and gives you the impression that you've got a little bit closer to seeing that full picture, but at what cost? Now the electrics are working harder, the wires hotter, and the connected systems are struggling to function at all. All because the lights are sucking all the power.
In reality you're running with reduced margin and your vehicle can't take it. You're headed for burnout. So how long can you go on? See, when you continue on in an imbalanced state like this, component failures and breakdowns are only a matter of time.
So what do you do...? You re-align the headlamps. Better still you get somebody who understands the entire system to correct the bits that are broken and tune-up the machine. Same bulbs. Same wiring. Same everything. Just make the tweaks that count. They reduce the stress level on the whole vehicle behaviour. It becomes a new beast.
There's less stress on the engine, less stress on the wires, less stress on the components...the whole vehicle operates much closer to optimum, without the one-sided stress…and guess what. Now you can see clearly! Now you can see the road ahead, and it's an effortless one…because everything is working…the way it's meant to.
