Yes Means No
When we choose to say "yes" to something we are also choosing to say "no" to something else. The truth is our resources are limited: time, money, energy, relationships, mental capacity, and connectivity. If we buy a new car and make payments, we are declining to use that money in other areas. If we decide to get up early to exercise each morning, we are giving up the option of sleeping in. If we decide to play golf after work three days a week, we are forfeiting the opportunity to spend time with our kids.
Regardless of what popular culture might tell us, we can't have it all. We've got to decide what we want (and need) the most and choose accordingly.
