The road most travelled

The road most travelled

I would like to share with you a powerful insight about the road most travelled. In your life, which road do you take? The road most travelled or least travelled? Whichever decision you make, you are either taking road A or road B. if you choose to become an accountant, are you taking the profession because that’s what most of your peers are specializing in? Or because they are few individuals pursuing the same course? Remember, always focus on the out crowd. There is chaos in the in crowd. Avoid following the crowd. In life’s success, the majority are not always right.

Avoid the road most travelled. It is likely that you are going to be fighting each other to find breathing space. Always be thinking; “what is the unoccupied space?” Which road is being less travelled? Look at the opportunities which are available but not yet tapped into. Once you have mindset in the road less travelled, you will find successes which many have overlooked.


In your life, which road do you take? The road most travelled or least travelled?


You can see this during traffic jams on most Kampala roads. If you a person who leaves home between 6:30 am and 9 am, that is a peak hour jam period. Many parents are taking their children to school around the same time. You are spending most of your productive time in traffic jam.

However, if you are going to use the road less travelled, try to wake up early at 4am so that by 5:30am you are already at school or office. You have organized with the school you can drop the children regardless of the time. You find less inconveniences.

Keep it in mind; whenever you take a decision, is it the road most travelled or less travelled. Much as it might be somehow difficult, you find a lot of breathing space in the road less travelled. The chances of success in the less crowded space is much higher in the long run.
