Have you ever tail-gated someone in the car? Used bad language to another driver in front of your kids? Cut people off? Refused to let someone in because you “didn’t have the time”? Lost your temper when another driver did something annoying or that inconvenienced you?
Have you ever received a fine for running a red light? How about a speeding ticket or parking ticket?
Being disorganised contributes to all of these circumstances a significant amount of the time.
You speed because you’re late, and in most cases you’re late because you didn’t give yourself enough time to get where you’re going (there are some instances where it’s out of your control, but if you’re really honest with yourself those times are the minority). Because you’re late you’re also more likely to be intolerant of other drivers; losing your temper, tail-gating and swearing. Also if you’re rushing you’re more likely to be distracted, which is very dangerous. And you’re more likely to attempt to take a phone call in the car because you “haven’t got time to stop”, which is extremely dangerous.
You get a parking ticket because you forget to move your car, or lose track of time. Or worse still, forget where you park!
What kind of example are you setting for your kids? How safe are you on the road? How much money does it cost you in fines?
You may need to make some changes to your level of organisation and your time management so that you can be relaxed in the car. It will save you time, money and may save a life.
