    A Few Thoughts on Tunnel Vision

    The Recovering Pessimist: Tunnel Vision -- Don't miss out on opportunities around you because you're so focused on what's ahead of you. #amwriting #recoveringpessimist #optimisticpessimistWhen I’m driving, I notice that people don’t look before changing lanes. Nor do they check for vehicles (and people) when backing out of parking spaces. Oh and don’t forget when they almost mow down pedestrians because they don’t bother took look before they mash on the gas.

    *sighs loudly*

    On this random day, I observed one vehicle cut off another vehicle. I doubt the driver looked before he/she decided to change lanes. As I drove past these two vehicles, I got inspired to write this blog post.

    I don’t have enough fingers or toes to count these missed opportunities on. I was so busy focused on completing a particular task this on particular way that I completely missed out on potential opportunities.

    It took me a while to stop beating myself up over this. I also don’t want you to beat yourself up over this. Mistakes are a part of life. I want to remind you to see the opportunities around you.

    Don’t let these opportunities pass you by.

    Until next time,
