When driving, you have two ways of staying ahead
By blocking the road for the one behind
Which is when you change lanes often, you change speeds often, you brake often, you shift gears often. Your mind is driven by the one behind. Not the road.
And occassionally you ignore some other car coming up from behind, that you werent prepared for.
Or by being the fastest on the road
It doesnt matter who’s behind you. Its you who defines the race. And the goal
How are you ahead of the race?
