Finding parking

a habit of taking quiet paths

I live in a busy city.

With some of the largest malls in the world.

It might take an hour to find parking during lunch hour.

I have a method to find parking relatively quickly.

It’s based on supply and demand.

You see a car park is like a maze. At every fork or junction, I would ask myself, which path is taken less often. I reason that because the path is taken less frequently, available spots stay available for longer, increasing my chances of getting an available slot.

I apply this principle in most areas of my life.

e.g I have lunch or dinner an hour early, so I get better service and less wait time at restaurants, I go to the gym at 2 in the afternoon, and I work when everyone else is sleeping.
