A Third Option

There is always a third option.  We tend to think in extremes and either/or, yes or no, but there is always a third option.  Look for it.

Today i climbed stairs for a little aerobic activity.  I climbed 6 flights and was winded.  I wanted to quit.  Quit? i asked myself and take the easy way out, or do it again and do the hard, rewarding thing?  I met myself halfway:  i climbed 3 more flights for a total of 200 steps.  The third option.  I got to win.
