Sometimes it seems that we get so engrained in our own routines and mindset that we take the way things are as truth and don’t question whether they could be another way.

This video (2:03) is an example of that in the extreme: 

Are there situations where you are acting like you are stuck on the escalator, even though you really do have other choices?  Do you become paralyzed with inaction rather than generating options?

The absurdity of this video is apparent, yet I think at times we all act that way in different settings.  The next time you feel stuck, think about the escalator and ask yourself if there isn’t another way to ascend the stairs.
