I think it was Prof Steven Hawkins who said at the closing  ceremony of the Olympics 2012 in London, “dont look at your feet, look up to the stars!”

Or on a more personal basis, on the speed awareness course last week, the instructor, trying to reverse our normal approach, suggested looking to the sky, and working down, and back to the front of your car.

This approach works, because you see everything, and yes its easier from the driving seat of a 7.5 tonne lorry, than it is a car.However both quotes are a good approach to life. Looking at your feet, all you see, is the immediate future, looking to the horizon, gives you more chance to plan when you see the rain clouds approach.
