Ever wondered what those blinking or stagnant blips on your dashboard meant? wonder no more, here you’ll find a list of dashboard indicators and what they symbolize.

Since cars don’t speak English, the only way they can communicate their health and well-being to us is through symbols and indicators on your car’s instrument cluster.

Color Implication

For the most part, a symbol in red indicates a potentially serious problem or safety issue. It is also used to indicate an important reminder. Yellow/orange mean something needs to be serviced or repaired soon. If the symbol is flashing, it is truly important that you contact your dealer. A green or blue symbol is for information only, telling you that a system is on or is operating.

Because right now we are going through a once-in-a-century transformation in business that is throwing out all the existing rules. And that includes everything that the MBA programs are currently teaching their students. Don’t believe me? Let’s look at how business has been taught for the past 100 years. It is a truth universally acknowledged that the fundamental goal of business is to create a hit product. You…

Thought Catalog

Twenty20 / burnningbridges Twenty20 / burnningbridges

1. “Forget about having an identity crisis and get some identity capital. Do something that adds value to who you are. Do something that’s an investment in who you might want to be next.”

2.  “Identity capital begets identity capital. So now is the time for that cross-country job, that internship, that startup you want to try. I’m not discounting twentysomething exploration here, but I am discounting exploration that’s ‘not supposed to count.’ Which, by the way, is not exploration – that’s procrastination.”
3.  “Our twenties are the defining decade of adulthood. Eighty percent of life’s most defining moments take place by about age 35. Two-thirds of lifetime wage growth happens during the first ten years of a career. More than half of Americans are married or are dating or living with their future partner by age 30.

Thought Catalog

They are captivating.

I avoided commitment for a long time because I was scared it would get boring if I stuck with one girl.

It actually made me happy to think about just being with her. -Colin, 32

I spent the majority of adult life in a serious relationship. I questioned the idea of being with this person forever but couldn’t seem to let go. When it finally ended, I was destroyed and I felt like I would never be the same. Turns out, I was right, I’m not the same and that’s actually a good thing. It’s taken many months to put the pieces of my life back together and so far, it’s been an amazing, and extremely confusing, journey. I wouldn’t trade any of it, even the worst moments, for one more minute with the ex-love of my life.

As a self-proclaimed “independent” girl, it has taken me a long time to come to terms with my fear of being alone. I never let my relationship stop me from living my life, traveling and doing the things I wanted to do, however…

Thought Catalog

I need to understand what you want from me. I need rules. I need boundaries.

I’ve never done this before. I don’t know what I’m doing. Are the games and mixed signals normal? Are there societal expectations I’m supposed to follow?

You don’t get to say “Honestly, I see us getting back together once the summer’s over” or “I wish I could just fast forward to twenty-five and marry you”. You can’t have both; you can’t be single, telling me to “move on” and also keep stringing me along. I don’t deserve to be a safety net in case you realize you made a mistake.

Am I supposed to text you when I get good news I’d been waiting for? If you call me drunk at two in the morning on a Saturday night, am I supposed to answer?

If nothing else, it’s just hard to break…
