Can I use "people" instead of "you"?
Yes, you can use "people" in this case instead of "you". The pronoun "you" in this context is used in reference to people in general, and not specifically someone the speaker is talking to directly. It is common to use "you" in this way and anytime it is used with this meaning, you can substitute it with the word "people". Ex: Time goes so slow and then you wake up one day and realize it's gone by fast. Ex: I always keep a first aid kit in my car. You never know when you're going to need it.
