It is a choice — of course it is ok to eat out IF you’re aware of how much it costs. So many people eat out all the time for convenience and not for enjoyment. And it if you’re going to be financially responsible, you need to be able to evaluate those choices. That’s all he was saying.
This is one reason why I’ve moved to a “Profit First” process and all of the income paid to me is moved immediately to a “real” bank and isn’t sitting in my paypal account. I can walk down the street and talk with my banker.
Brilliant response John. You’re so right. Tech is doing many wonderful things, but we’re forgetting that they are tools NOT our life.
It drives me crazy that my daughter cannot sit and enjoy a movie with me without scrolling thru facebook or some other social media. Mindless distractions.
Grant. Massively true and inspiring. I’ve been trying to teach my children (and anyone who will listen) that everything is a choice and it is the “easy route” to get pissed at others… but to embrace them and care for them because they too have troubles is more difficult — but so much more rewarding! Bless you.
Tom — interesting read and I empathise with ya on this. I’ve been thru one change (going from computer programmer to blogger) and I’m not sure how I’ll weather another one, but being flexible is certainly a must in these days. P.S. Good luck!
