Isnt Situational Awareness just simply paying attention. We have all heard it a million times from our Parents, Grandparents, Teachers, Coaches when they say... "pay attention or someone might get hurt". No matter where you are, you are in some sort of situation. It might be driving in traffic, slicing a tomato, walking down stairs... to answer the question: Paying attention has probably saved me from a problem too many times to realize or even count.
Life is a web woven by necessity and chance...
