Sounds helpful, but usually when I rush, there are fewer things I do which slow me down and which seem to matter. I forget my phone; keys; additional bags; but I do not, for example, start collecting the washing in case it rains when I am out, miscalculate and miss my bus. It is like I have two kinds of failure modes, and the rushing one is more easy to compensate for. Phone? Bah. Keys? Go back. Bags? Count them on the run. Pillowcase is going to get wet? Well, screws to be you, pillowcase.
