This chapter outlines the ways in which executives typically find themselves following the car in front. It includes a discussion of Stanford psychology professor Carol Dweck’s work on fixed versus growth mindsets, and how a fixed mindset can often lead people to stay behind the car in front because to not do so would be to step out of their comfort zone. The chapter also warns against the danger of “midlife caution”: the tendency to avoid any risk when marriage, mortgages, and children come into the frame. To conclude, the chapter addresses the fact that it is easy to get stuck behind the car in front without even realising, but that the book’s intention is to help resolve that.
