Holiday Traffic

Monday was not a holiday. But as I drove into work (and even more pronounced in my work parking lot), it sure seemed like it. Several people have taken off for what may be the entire week. And that, in my opinion, is great for them.

My wish for them is to use the holiday to enjoy and recharge. For me, their time off allowed me to take advantage of the light traffic.  As fewer people clogged the highways heading to work, the drive passed by quickly.

Alternatively, when it is popular vacation time, the paths to the beach or the lake get a little bit more congested. Cars line up, waiting to get to their pleasure destination.

Even when it isn't a holiday, these patterns hold true. Have you ever gone to work on a Saturday? How about tried to play golf or go to the gym in the middle of the day on a Tuesday? If you go against the popular trend, you might find your path easier than you think. The same is true for businesses. As more and more traditional industries are being disrupted by innovation and new ideas, those that truly create brilliance find that the gym is empty when they arrive. They can choose whatever treadmill they would like.

It is easy to beat the competition when there truly is no competition. (Tweet This)

How can you find your empty playing field? Where is your wide open highway? Find it and step on the gas.
