When a spiral staircase appears in front of you, don't panic. Just know that if you place your feet on that first step, it shows commitment. You can't go back. You can only go up and up and up until you reach the very top.

Watch your step. That's the main thing to remember. Some people think they can race to the top, or take the steps two at a time. All it takes is one stumble, one slip, and soon you're tumbling, arms pinwheeling, shins banging, down, down, down.

You don't want to be rejected by a spiral staircase. It's painful.

The audio on this one drove me bonkers, so I ended up just reading it.

Interesting story with nice riffs on opportunity and introspection.
