Change trains early

Have you ever got on a train and realized you’ve incorrectly chosen a local train that stops at every station? You see the express train whiz past as your train chugs along with stops and starts.

It’s tempting to see it through and wait it out on the slow train. Why introduce more uncertainty?

What’s the worst that can happen? Sometimes the best course of action is to get off the slow train and wait for the next express or catch an Uber. The earlier you make the change, the better.
