"Mind the Gap" and "Gap the Mind"

London is very good at warning train passengers about the board to “Mind the Gap.” In other words, don’t step down between the train and the platform and thus break your leg.

But I always read it backwards, as “Gap the Mind.” That is, it’s good to have some mental space to think and plan. Perhaps “good” isn’t a strong enough word – it is essential to high productivity and effectiveness.
