So...I'm out on my walk today, heading home, when I notice I'm on the same route as the garbage truck. Just as I pass it, I notice a four block stretch of garbage cans waiting for up picking and say to myself, "I can reach 10th street before the truck does." My pace picks up, my spirits pick up, and the garbage truck picks up! My primary goal? 10th street. My secondary goal? To keep at least one garbage can ahead of the truck. A little winded, a little elated, I reach both goals. By the time I get home, I start to analyze my behavior. I'm not ordinarily extremely competitive. But I was. I like to think of myself as goal oriented. I now spell that OCD! But I did win, and you are loved!
