You ever have one of those days where you wake up and you just want to try something different? I woke up a little bit earlier than I anticipated and reflected a bit on how I wanted my day to go.
I had a meeting with a colleague in about two hours. My colleague lived about an hour away from me. We often met halfway, but it was typically at the same Starbucks each week. I pulled out Google Maps and conducted an impromptu search for “café.” I spotted this little Italian bagel shop about ten minutes away from our normal spot.
My colleague agreed to meet me there for our weekly meeting. By golly, it turned out to be a great decision. I had sausage, egg, and cheese in a bagel followed up by fruit, cannoli, and coffee.
It was THAT good and totally worth it.
Sometimes it is worth taking a small risk and breaking up the routine.
