Perceiving a Broken Escalator

No one takes the stairs any more. The stairs appear to be an impediment, a very last option.

People prefer to take the escalator or the elevator just to go one floor. We don’t think twice when presented with a shortcut because it saves us energy and time.

But why skip steps? Why store extra energy that biologically needs to be exhausted in order for us to evolve?

The person that perceives a broken escalator as a hurdle may by conquered by laziness. The person that sees the broken escalator as an opportunity to get the blood flowing is ready for a challenge.

You don’t get anywhere without putting in the work and building emotional muscle. Creative energy is a process that starts from the way you live your life. The more energy you spend, the more you get back. The next time you see the stairs, take them.
