look here, but also look up there

While driving the other day, I noticed that a lot of people seem to be real concerned about getting around the person in front of them. But in many cases they would go into a lane that before they realized it was backed up only a short distance ahead. This usually traps them in and I drive on by. So they would have to slow way down and end up falling in behind the car they were behind before….so they wasted time, effort and may have put them in a bit more of a dangerous area.

Wouldn’t it be smarter to look ahead a bit and see where that lane ends up, before moving into it? I try to look at life this way as well…look ahead a bit and see what a quick decision may lead to…is it worth the effort to do this, or will I just get stuck and end up further back anyway?

Look where you are but also look where you may go if you make a change. Change is good, but considering the options and the ramifications first usually helps.
