With stay at home orders still in effect, people are out walking on a regular basis. In my area, many of the roads do not have sidewalks, causing people to walk in the road. When on a sidewalk, the rule of thumb is to walk the same way traffic flows. But on the road with no sidewalks, the rule of thumb is to walk opposite the flow of traffic so you can see cars coming at you. But very few people make the adjustment and walk opposite traffic.
Going with the flow and not adjusting when conditions change happens all the time in business and in life. The key is to notice that conditions have actually changed. Once you do, you be able to make the appropriate adjustments.
