hostility and agression
When we are driving, we have intention.
We want something.
We want to stop being where we are.
We want to be some place else.
Much of the time, for many people, it’s easy to go with the flow.
There are other times, when we’re running late, when others rely on us or, perhaps when our progress has been frustrated that aggression and hostility creep into the picture.
Neither hostility nor aggression magically open up room on the road.
My car is not equipped with guided missiles on my bumper to help move along slow moving traffic. If your vehicle has this feature, please let me know where I can have it added to mine.

I’m not so sure that would be effective.
The worst part about hostility and aggression on the road is that those feelings can stick around.
Sometimes, when these come up do a pretty good job of avoiding the hostility and aggression trap.
Other times, when we’re inconvenienced, impeded or desperate for an opening, and we face red lights at every turn.
The real enemy here is our sense that we can control the outcome when we leave on any journey.
This is true with your career, your business and your drive to the office.
It’s like the old saying goes:
It’s better to swallow a watermelon than to tap dance on landmines.
