You should know where you’re headed before you step out the door each day.
It’s one of the most important life lessons you can learn.
And it’s best to learn it early so that your days are structured, and your life has definition as you step over the threshold of your home and into the world.
Where you go and what you do you to arrive at destination is a decision you have to make before you start your day.
Getting in your car, getting in your SUV, getting in your truck, getting in your van, getting in any vehicle and not knowing where you’re going is unwise.
Deciding where you want to go after you are behind the wheel really makes no sense. You’re making a decision, but you’re already in route.
How can you ride the highway, drive a country road and it not be the road that you need to be on?
And now, you find yourself on a road you shouldn’t be on because of the destination you now know you want to go to.
It also can be risky; you want to be focused on your destination as part of your drive. That’s the only reason for driving is that you need to get to some place.
You want to go from A to B and maybe C, D, E and F while you’re out. One way or another whether it’s just one destination or several destinations, you must have a plan.
You need to realize that making a decision after you get behind the wheel is treacherous. Imagine if all the drivers were not allowed to step out of their home unless they could answer the question, “I am going here and here and here and then I’m going home.”
Can you imagine what a safe roadway we would be driving if that was the case?
Currently, I bet you as you’re driving you can pick out the drivers who don’t have a destination in mind.
You know the ones—-speeding here and there—-accelerating and burnin’ rubber. They’re trying to get to some destination, which may be just the next town, but they start to decide what their actual destination is after they have gotten behind the wheel.
Just take a step back imagine what our roads would be if we were required to answer the question to an officer of the law …”whe’re you headed, pal?”
We would all be on the road knowing that we had to get to point B to point C to point D then back home.
Be mindful of your driving. Select your destinations before you drive.
We will all benefit.
