Should I take the road less traveled?

We’ve all heard the saying, “The shortest distance between two points is a straight line.”

Last week, as I was walking around a school, I thought to myself, is that saying true? Are there certain routes within a school building that take less time to travel than others? What would be the benefits of taking the faster route?

I videotaped myself walking to the same location taking two different routes.
Which route is the most efficient route to walk?
Do they both take the same amount of time?
How might you determine which route the is best route to travel?
