I have always considered my OCD to be quite mild but as I spend more and more time with the general plethora of humanity I begin to understand that I am rather a detail orientated control freak. Having things "just right" in a car is not about pride or the desperate need for a hobby.
In a car you are at the wheel of more than a tonne of steel filled with combustible fluids and the bodies of your most loved family and friends as you hurtle down the road at great speed. You might Feng Shui a house but have you ever considered the optimum design and layout for your car?
What will distract you? Will your bag go flying as you bend it like Beckham around the roundabout sending God knows what scattering through your car and under the drivers feet?
Do you have pets crawling around? Do you have an assortment of crystals or stuffed toys? Is there a half eaten sandwich and a neglected cup of cold coffee slipping around?
Having a car that is clean, neat and ready to roll is not only for your personal satisfaction but also for your safety. Sound, taste, sight, smell and touch are all senses that you need to be aware of as you take the wheel. Over the next few weeks I will take you through each of the senses to Feng Shui your ride.
