Just a quickie post: The Blog equivalent of a Knee trembler on the fire-escape at the back of a night club. Or if you was a Tiv Regular back in “the good ole days!” then a quick visit to that middle floor seating area.
Hang on… I’ve gone of topic slightly, and to be fair any mention of the Tiv deserves a full blog post for itself. Maybe someday… Right, for now back to “the Big Picture” of this quick post, and the lesson for the week that I wish to impart to you.

R: “You know for a <quote>Just a quickie post</quote> you have so far “babbled” for 112 words?“
GN: “You actually counted them? Sheeeesh, you have way too much time on your hands!”
R: “Duh!!!! If I did not, I wouldn’t be reading your blog would I?“
GN: “Fair Point. I’ll give you that. Now Back to the story…..“
To tell you the truth, I’ve now forgotten what I was going to post about, “Hey it is a Monday morning. I can be forgiven!” The Big Picture, that was it.
This morning as I drove to work I was stopped on a hill by the car in front of me wishing to turn right, and was waiting for a break in the oncoming traffic or a nice driver to stop and let him cross. We were there for quite a while as a silly amount of cars came past in a constant stream. After about five minutes the driver gave up and drove on, planning on taking a different longer route to where he wanted to go.
Now if he had looked at “The Bigger Picture” or at least ocular mapped the area, he would have realised two important things.
1) The reason there was so much traffic coming down the hill was due to the road works slightly higher up the hill, which were on Red for us, Green for them.
2) If he waited for lights to change he could have turned with no problem.
As it was he drove past his turning and got stuck in the row of cars waiting for the lights to change.
So people, Always look at the big picture. Take that extra few seconds to look outside of your comfort zone. See why things are as they are, and how they affect you. You could end up saving yourself a lot of hassle and problems.
Remember Rome was not built in a day. But with modern technology we could flatten it in minutes. It makes you think!
