Elevator or Stairs? 

Our lives ahead steadily unfold one moment at a time. Our past decisions are what make us today, and likewise our present decisions would thus define our future. As Sherlock Holmes very aptly says “Tiniest of details are in fact the most important ones”, smallest of everyday decisions are the basis of what lies ahead for us tomorrow. And our everyday decisions can be boiled down one argument: Elevator or Staircase?

Let me elaborate my theory. Elevator represents the easy, quick and comfortable solutions whereas Staircase represents the difficult, time consuming and uncomfortable answers. So what should we choose? The elevatorsolutions will solve our problems at our convenience without much discomfort to our lives (or so it may seem). On the other hand the staircase solution will help increase our stamina and tolerance limit in the long run (again or so it may seem).

However, life isn’t a black or white. Neither are our decisions so straightforward. So the question that remains is what shade of grey should our decision be? Should we climb a few stairs and take the elevator to remaining floors or should we take the elevator first and climb the last few flights of stairs.

Wisdom thus lies in choosing the shade of grey eventually.
