On Saturday, I was at a work thingy at the Sheraton and at some point I needed to use the restroom
Now this didn't make any sense to me because I assumed, and rightly so, that there was no way Sheraton Hotel would have just one female bathroom stall on a floor. Based on my assumption and quick thinking and of course my pressing need, I pushed the door just a little bit harder and voila! It opened up into a corridor and at least five stalls. She gasped and stared in shock, while I waltzed in and went about my business. =_=
Now, that singular incidence got me thinking hard. I wondered about the opportunities life often presents to us and how we handle them. She was close, yet so far and all because she did not think outside the box like I did. Often times, we are faced with challenges that just needs our stepping back and taking a longer look at the situation from a different perspective for us to arrive at our solution. In this day and age, thinking on one's feet does more good than harm because the world is going at a much faster pace now than ever before. In those few moments before I got to her side, I was able to view the institution before me, think out the possible solutions and apply it. That made getting in easier for me.
That instance not only gave me access, it also birthed this post. So my dearest readers, I implore you to learn from my "bathroom experience" and apply yourselves to all challenges that may come your ways. I remember an advert from back in the days that went something like "good thinking, good products", I hereby challenge you to memorize and act on these words whenever the need arises; "quick thinking, great solutions". Bear in mind that it isn't just the quick timing of your thoughts that matter, but the quality of output they result in.
Have a lovely day ahead. :)
