My Life ~ How I drive

I have been driving now for over 15 years and I have been known to drive at break-neck speeds. Also, my driving style has been quoted by many as “rash”. But, since I bought my new Car in 2009, I have changed my driving style completely. Also, being in US, I have been more patient on roads and drive under the given speed limits; very careful over bumps and bad roads. I was timing myself and noticed that it now takes me 50 minutes to reach office where it used to take me 30 minutes earlier. While I loose time driving, I have started to enjoy my driving. I use this time to do lot of thinking. Many of my blog entries are conceived as I am driving down to office. 

Retrospecting on my life today, I realized that my driving is a reflection of my life. I was in the fast lane always, wanted to do everything the same day, wanted to to everything – simply rushing past my life. But, for last few months, I have changed quite a bit. I do not push as hard as I used to earlier, I do not rush into things as I used to earlier, most importantly I am thinking a lot more than I used to. And, I realize how important all this was.

Assuming that this co-relation is a true, two things that I would like to relate to my life:
1. Car fuel efficiency increases by 25% with this new driving style. I have noticed that because I have started to take things at a slower pace, I have been able to retain small tasks lot more that I have been in the past. I do not completely forget the lesser things in life and;
2. I still at times compete with others on the road and it is then when I go back to being the original Kapil thus proving myself that I have not lost my ability
