Positive Anticipation is not paranoia

Anticipating potential incidents involves a constant psychological exercise.
Always be aware of your surroundings and the potential problems, then mentally handle them before they occur.
The better you become at anticipating problems the less likely they are to occur. To protect yourself against the possibility of attacks of any type, you must be prepared in every way.
Prevention by anticipation requires an acute knowledge of your proposed plans and routes.
Some criminals (not the opportunist) will plan an attack by watching their potential victim for a period of time. As part of your self defence self protection strategy it is your duty to look at your obvious surroundings while being aware of the conspicuous at all times.
As you have familiarised yourself with your surroundings which by now should take less than 10 seconds, you should also be making a note of escape routes and areas of safety.

Don’t ignore what you see
Assess Evaluate Take action
