I’ve been cleaning my office of books and reference materials that I haven’t used for years and probably won’t need again. Doing this made me realize that I have done a great deal with my life professionally. It also made me realize that I could have done more.
This led to the thought that life is like a buffet. There are many, many options available. We can go through and sample a little bit of each. Or we can select fewer items and really savor those rather than trying everything.
Maybe I have done alright by fully experiencing fewer items, especially since if I had done more professionally I would have had less time for personal pursuits.
What are your thoughts? Would you prefer to sample as many items as possible, or sample fewer and savor them more?
