March 11, 2018- Being Street Smart

Hello dear March,

 

are you street-smart? I was wondering about myself, being a lot around books, but it seems that the street smart quality is very important to survive in this world.

How does one develop it?

Maybe by observation and being attentive in the moment?

Any other ideas?

A friend told us she was attacked in central London, Bloomsbury area and she was stolen of her phone. A cyclist fell on her, and left. Two other men came near her, she thought they were helping, but in reality, they pushed her back as she was shocked and stole her phone.

In reality, the three were “working” together to steal from her.

She was kind of shocked that her expectation for help when she was down, was not met.

At least she was not physically hurt.

What to do to become street smart?

Looking around?

Not walking with a cell phone on our hand and talk?

Life in the big city, is full of surprises.

Any tips for street-smartness?
