Crossing the road

There’s a game I like to play while waiting to cross the road, both at traffic lights and while crossing anywhere else.

I look around at the other people waiting to cross and try to guess who will cross on their own terms and who will just blindly cross when they see someone else take the first step.

Most of the time I guess currently.

There’s a lesson in the game which I think can be applied to life.

Always cross the road on your own terms.
