100% in or No Thank You
That’s the way I’ve been looking at the world lately and it’s amazing. If I wouldn’t move my schedule around for an upcoming event, I won’t go (even if my schedule is clear). I’d rather stay home, read, write, sleep, etc.
My time is my most valuable asset. Everything that has been given to me (arbitrary birth time and place plus good decision making and a whole lot of luck) can be taken away tomorrow or the next day. So I live in the moment and I cherish what I have and what I have the privilege to do next. I’m either doing what I want to do or what someone else wants me to do, seldom do those things consciously overlap.
