Are You On Autopilot?

I have a confession to make. I run on autopilot far more than I would like to admit.

Can I share a story about one of my recent autopilot experiences? Ok, I knew you wouldn’t mind.

I had gone to our local Wesco gas station to grab a couple of Coke Zero/Coke Zero Cherry 20 ouncers. I opened the front glass doors, went to the pop section, picked out my choices, and went to the cashier. There, I made my payment and went to exit the store.

Cue the autopilot moment.

I get to the door and SMACK!!! I walk right into the glass door. Yeah, the one I opened up by hand to get into the gas station.
