Take the Stairs

Welcome back to the Creative Life Adventure.

I’ve been on a brief summer hiatus. My wife and I were fortunate enough to spend a little time in the beautiful city of Montreal. While I get back in the swing of things, I wanted to share something we encountered while climbing two long flights of stairs to a hotel room in an older building without elevators. This called to mind the creative journey and I took a quick photo as we carried our luggage upward. And our host’s sense of humor made us smile.

Hallway in Montreal hotel with sign that reads
“There is no shortcut to success, you have to take THE STAIRS!”

I also like the fire extinguisher nearby. A reminder that we should never hesitate to accept assistance when we need it.

For what it’s worth, our climb was rewarded with this view from our window.

So whenever you are able, take the stairs and enjoy the view!
