Mounds or Almond Joy?

Sometimes I feel like taking the elevator. Its usually when I'm lethargic and my brain is weary from a full days work. The elevator is a welcomed pause between work and deciding what to eat for supper.

Other days I feel energetic and the elevator seems like a slow way to get to the parking lot. I have the option of taking the stairs from my basement office up and out the front of the building, but the elevator leads to a door that lets out directly into the parking lot. Thus going around from the front of the building to the parking lot seems counter-productive.

The door to the stairs right next to the elevator seem so inviting, except that there is a large sign that reads: WARNING, fire alarm will sound if this door is opened. The embarrassment of setting off the fire alarm simply because I was too impatient to wait for the elevator door to open just isn't my style.

The grass is always greener on the other side of the fence isn't it?

This job requires self-motivation as many of the projects are dependent on my initiative. It also requires attention to detail, good communication skills, and a healthy dose of creativity.
