Lane of least resistance


Author —Auteur — Peter Georgariou

In driving, the lane of least resistance is the lane that usually has the least amount of traffic and obstacles, making for a smoother and faster driving experience.

On a two-lane road, for example, it is usually the right lane (in North America)  because you don’t get stuck behind someone turning left. It might also be the lane with less road work, fewer potholes, or require fewer lane changes.

These lanes exist in our lives as well. Lanes where life flows somewhat seamlessly. 

Yet, consciously or not, we create a steady stream of traffic jams, road work, and accidents along our path. We may dig a pothole or two, or twenty, to slow down our journey and riddle it with frustration and the occasional road rage of life.

Why is that?

Because we are conditioned to believe that life should be a struggle and that a sense of ease cannot precede anything worthwhile.

Sure, accomplishing great things in our lives does require a process, a practice and a commitment to showing up every day to do the work. However, it doesn’t necessitate us being in a constant state of disease.


What is one decision you could make today to reduce the resistance in your life? Something (or someone) to let go of? 

A thought pattern that is no longer serving you?

Peeps that aren’t elevating you?

A habit that needs commitment? 

That lane of least resistance exists for all of us. We just need to clear the way to find it.

Let’s do this!
