Having a life that is under control and endless in strength

Remember the runaway stagecoach in the old western movies, thundering down the road out of control? We all felt pretty certain that eventually someone would climb from inside the coach or gallop up alongside the team of horses, grab the reins, and bring the stagecoach safely under control. In the fast-track pace of the nineties, however, it seems that a lot of people who might describe their lives as out of control, like that runaway stagecoach, aren't feeling very confident that someone or something will suddenly appear on the scene to get things back to normal.

Technological advancement doesn't appear to have stilled the workday rush that is said to be causing people to feel frazzled and burned out. In fact, some are saying that cellular phones, faxes, and beepers have simply made it easier to bring work into areas where it used to be somewhat off-limits. Now people have the potential to send and receive messages in their homes, in their cars, at the store—even on the beach.
