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.
