I bet you do something. Next time you're out on a nice open bit of road on a clear day enjoying a drive / ride, analyse yourself. I bet you'll find you come onto a straight, accelerate for a while, decide you're going fast enough, then think about having to slow down at the end of the straight. Don't get overcome with thinking about distances, just be aware that there are phases.

Yes. But we fight it all the time. Self-awareness is the key to self-improvement. I went out for a drive after my hospital visit this morning just for fun, and a considerable part of the fun was self-analysis - "what could I have done better there?". There'll never be a drive without any of those.
