It's Worth a Thought...
Lifts and the need for big horizons
Some of you may be able to remember the days when you got into a lift and there was someone there to operate it and tell you what was being sold on each floor. (And if you are, you are showing your age!)
As a boy I used to think what fun that would be to have a job like that. Now a few years down the track I realise that one would have to fight boredom and monotony every hour of the day. Some time ago I read of where a young man in New York employed as a lift attendant would start each day with a trip to the top of the building. When asked why he replied “All day I am confined to this two metre square box but I’ve got to start the day with 'lots of horizon'.” I like the idea. How we start the day is important and it does influence the rest of the day.
