Control What You Can Control

You can’t control everything; it’s good to remind yourself of this fact when things get hectic and life gets stressful. If you have control over the things that make you upset, then change them. If your situation or circumstance is beyond your control, then you must adjust. There’s a more proactive way to look at this, though—take control of the things you can control.

Many of the variables that can affect your industrial motion control system are outside of your influence, so you must take charge of the factors that you can control.

Factors you can’t control

Some of the issues that affect productivity on your floor can’t be predicted or prevented. The quality of electricity being sent to your factory, the physical amount of space in your warehouse, and time are all things that you can’t easily change.

There’s not much that you can do to keep your workers from getting sick. You can’t follow people around reminding them to wash their hands, get plenty of sleep, and eat their vegetables. People also make mistakes. Human error can cause bumps in production and slow down productivity. Again, this isn’t something that you can control.

You can’t control the weather, power outages, or the traffic on your morning commute. That’s just how it goes, and you have to roll with the punches. However, you can make sure that your machinery is properly maintained and running optimally at all times.
