Objects in mirror are closer than they appear

A month ago I was going for a ride with a friend in his car, a Ford Mustang. And a few minutes later of being in the car, I noticed that, in the mirror there was a warning that said (just like in any American car): Objects in mirror are closer than they appear.
When I looked through the Mustang’s mirror I actually saw everything quite far. Just to make sure I turned my head and yeap, everything was closer that it appeared in the mirror.
That kept me thinking for a while, and I started to relate it with everything: deadlines are closer than they appear, promises, appointments… even family commitments!
But, one of them was for real: what really is closer than it appears is change. Whether you want it or not, change is here. And it’s here to stay.
Change might seem that is quite far, but most of the times there’s a huge penalty for ignoring change and being too late. And that’s what happens when you observe your reality through a mirror. A mirror you’re actually comfortable with.
Change is closer than it appears.
