Everything is a trade off


As I sit here typing this I look around and see a cluttered desk, papers stacked every which way, books neatly held up by a lion head book end, and other miscellaneous stuff strewn about.  My room is a mess with clothes tossed here and there, an unmade bed, things stacked on top of one another in front of my open closet doors.  These are things which need to be taken care of sooner than later yet they still sit around the room.  Why?  Why do I allow this mess?  Why don’t I just knock it out, get organized and do better about keeping it that way?  The plain and simple truth is I’m not feeling it.  Motivation comes and goes but mostly it just goes.  You see everything has a cost, everything has value but different people assign different values to “things” whether that thing is being organized, having time to play video games, serving others, job satisfaction, making a difference or just getting high and staring at a wall.

The real question is what is your ROI (return on investment)?  That is the question you must ask yourself, is what I’m doing right now going to give me the most ROI or am I being short sighted and just satisfying my current need/want?  Sometimes that’s all that matters and that’s ok, but overall what will your legacy be?  Will you have had a wonderful life full of fantastic memories and fun or will you be remembered as the person who went to work for 40 years, retired and died.  I’d like to think I would be remembered as the guy who tried to make others feel better when they needed me most.  Smiles, a kind word, maybe even an opportunity to improve their situation to give their life meaning.
