You can’t have everything. Where would you put it? – Steven Wright

Of course, as a comic, I love to quote comics. But more significant than how funny this is, is how true this is. Having everything poses a space problem. More brings more headaches.

This isn’t to discourage you from striving. There is something to be said for dreaming big and thinking beyond either/ or. In that sense, the prospect of having it all is healthy.

On the other hand, accumulating blindly and not acknowledging the costs of your other limited resources (space, energy, attention) is unhealthy. You still want to consciously choose what you want to attain. having it all

For me, having it all means being creative AND making money, having a thriving career AND a loving family, feeling challenged AND getting enough rest. What does having “everything” mean to you?
