Specialist Police Unit to tackle speeding motorists and antisocial behaviour
Aim at reducing road casualties

Unit to be considered as part of two-year review by the Department of Transport

Could it be possible that our Can’t Wait behaviour may be a contributory factor in road traffic crashes that lead to injuries and fatalities.

Could it be possible that if we are living with this sense of “Can’t Wait” in our daily life then it continues behind the wheel of a vehicle because we are in that momentum.

Could it be possible that we need to STOP and PAUSE throughout our day so that we can have some space and move out of the Can’t Wait syndrome.


Dear Dear World

What if our Can’t Wait habits have consequences that we may not yet have fully considered.

What if our Can’t Wait behaviour affects all those around us, even if we are not aware of it at the time.

What if our Can’t Wait movements leave a footprint even though we may not want to know that.

What if our Can’t Wait attitude takes us away from living life in the Flow Zone.

What if our Can’t Wait Expression in life takes us off track from our natural way of living where everything simply unfolds without any anticipation or force.

Is this too way off and whacky or could there be a simple Truth here for us all to consider…?

  1. Thank you for this excellent blog.

    Reading this blog leads me to consider what has been going on with me on the occasions that I have driven with impatience and a “can’t wait” attitude.

    It’s obvious to me now that these instances of impatient driving have occurred at times when I have been trying to avoid being late and have been rushing because I have started a journey later than I should have.

    And why do I sometimes leave later than I should do and so sometimes not give myself enough time to get to my destination on time? And then end up driving impatiently?

    Because I am sometimes irresponsible with my time in the minutes or hours before leaving for work or appointments and end up leaving late.

    An example of this would be reading the news online in the morning when I know I should be getting ready for work and then leaving myself only 12 minutes to drive a journey that I know will take 20 minutes. That’s irresponsible.

    So, for me, “can’t wait” and being irresponsible are tied together.

  2. Thank you for this absolutely great blog!

    I use the expression “l can’t wait” quite often.

    An example of my use of that expression would be saying to someone in anticipation of meeting them, “I can’t wait to see you”.

    Also, during the course of a week at work, I have often thought to myself, ” I can’t wait for the weekend”. Then there is also “I can’t wait for this to be over” – something I have thought to myself often when engaged in something that I have found trying, difficult or unpleasant.

    But what is actually going on when I say or think, “I can’t wait”?

    In the moment that I use that expression, am I not either projecting myself into an imagined pleasure or escape in the future?

    Either way, I am leaving the present moment when I use the expression “I can’t wait” and that troubles me. Why? Because it makes me wonder: why is being in the here and now sometimes not enough for me?
