Finding the Road Less Traveled

One of the best ways to reduce the amount of stress and frustration in your life is to develop the habit of always looking for the road less traveled.


The secret to finding the road less traveled is to observe what the majority of people do, and then elect to do the exact opposite. Here are a few examples that illustrate how this strategy works in the real world:

Example 1: If you notice that everyone has lunch at 1.00pm and the cafeteria is crowded and noisy, make the decision to have lunch at 12.00 and avoid the lunch time rush.

Example 2: If you go to the gym after work and find yourself getting frustrated waiting for the machines you need, change your routine and go to the gym in the evening.

Example 3: If you find yourself continually stuck in queues at the grocery store, try shopping at 10pm on a Monday night when you can usually pick up what you need quickly and easily.

Whenever you find yourself wasting time, getting stressed or becoming frustrated, stop and look for the road less traveled. I was reminded of this strategy recently and put it to very good use

As you may know, my partner Bec and I recently got married. We had a wonderful honeymoon in Tasmania and planned to visit a beautiful spot called Cradle mountain which you can see in the picture above.

A few days before we visited Cradle mountain, we chatted to another couple who were also traveling through Tasmania. They informed us that they had just visited Cradle mountain and that it had been extremely crowded which had really ruined their experience.

Based on this feedback, Bec and I decided to take the road less traveled. We anticipated that most people would get to the mountain at about 10am, so we decided to get there at 7.30am.

We went on the most incredible walk and had the entire national park to ourselves! We saw the mist rising from the lake and encountered several animals along the way.

It was truly a magical experience and something we will never forget.

As we were leaving the national park, we saw several bus loads of tourists disembarking in the car park. We were very glad that we had elected to arrive early and had the opportunity to experience the beautiful wilderness by ourselves.

I took the road less traveled by, and that has made all the difference. - Robert Frost

In many situations, if you anticipate what most people will do and then elect to do the exact opposite, you can often find a much quieter, less stressful and more enjoyable pathway through life.

This pathway is the road less traveled I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
