Sure. When I was learning to fly, various instructors would pull the throttle and ask where I was going to land, and tell me to set up my approach. Good habit patterns stick with you. For example, depending on wind, weather and the boat I'm driving, I plan routes that take advantage of island protection, rather than taking the most direct route from A to B.
