More or Less

"Sometimes we are so concerned with giving our kids the good things we didn't have that they miss out on the good things we did have." - me

When we do more of one thing, we automatically end up with less of another. Sometimes this can be good. More exercise means less time wasting away on the couch. More disciplined study means less time beating our latest high score.

Sometimes, more of things might mean we miss out on something good. More time driving like a maniac from one activity to another means we might miss out on some time to connect, relax and build relationships.

It is often difficult to find the balance between doing more or less of this or that so I can have more or less of the other, but it is worth thinking about.
