Secrets of Success

"There Is No Elevator!" Neo Had It Right. :)




When I get in to work in the a.m., I take a trick from Neo's (the guy from The Matrix) playbook & tell myself "There is no elevator!' Just like the kid who helped Neo "free his mind" from the Matrix, I pretend my building doesn't have an elevator & happily take the stairs to my 4th-floor office!

More Information:

As a result, I only allow myself to take the elevator on my "days off" (the 1-2 days/week I don't go to the gym) and now, the elevator seems like such a nice little reward after ignoring day after day.
