Do Not Rely On Sat Nav
I’m staying in a place which I’m not accustomed to yet – I’ve got the hang of where I am, it’s comfortable and I know how to survive. I can find the shops and put fuel in the car.
I was asked to drive to Toulouse last night to collect Mick and Debbie, their sat nav was all set up for the airport a long time ago – all I had to do was switch it on and it would get me there. Easy peasy.
It wouldn’t switch on – it’d run out of battery and didn’t seem to accept the charge which was coming to it through the charger.
Sitting in the driveway, I had no idea where the motorway was. Oops!
Relying on something or someone else can mean that you stop thinking for yourself. You stop working out solutions and start to blame others or things for your inability to problem solve.
I remembered that I’d seen signs for Toulouse earlier in the day – it would mean a longer trip, but that was irrelevant, the longer trip would head me where I was intending to go.
As I cruised along the motorway, I had to trust that there would be signs to show me when my next turn should be. Amazingly, I arrived at the airport with 10 minutes to spare.
If at first your way is blocked, try another route, know where you’re headed and know that the signs will appear when you need them.
