The Recovering Pessimist: A Few Thoughts On Foresight -- I wonder if foresight is one of those skills like common sense. Everyone isn't born with it. You either have it or you don't. | www.therecoveringpessimist.me #amwriting #recoveringpessimist #optimisticpessimist This post originated from an observation I had while driving on the interstate: People don’t pay attention when they’re driving. This observation applies beyond driving. In general, people just don’t pay attention. All of the information, signs, etc. are there right in front of them, but they lack the foresight to see what’s to come.

It’s interesting to say the least.

I wonder if foresight is one of those skills that people either have it or they don’t. Similar to common sense. If that’s not the case, I can’t explain how people can’t see what’s going to happen when it’s in plain view.

What if foresight is one of those things where they can see what’s in front of them, but they don’t know what to do?

What if foresight is one of those things when they know what’s in front of them and they know what’s going to happen, but they don’t want to deal with the situation?

If you ever find yourself sitting in traffic, check out your surroundings. There’s a driver or two who doesn’t pay attention to lane closures, sudden braking, etc.
