Many opportunities will come your way.
But saying “yes” to everything isn’t a strategy, and it isn’t likely to work out over the long haul.
Somehow, someway, you’ve got to remember to put yourself first.
If you don’t, you could burn out. And you aren’t much good to yourself or anyone else if you burn out.
Your health and wellbeing are a macro consideration because they affect everything.
Many things people consider “macro” aren’t, whether it’s traveling, taking a new job, entering a relationship, or buying a house.
These opportunities need to fit within your ecosystem. If they don’t, they will take away from it. That makes them “micro” considerations.
So long as your heart is beating, there will always be more opportunities.
I don’t know how we’ve gotten away from this, but we have. We are putting other people and other priorities above our own wellbeing. And we are suffering the consequences.
What’s workable is putting yourself first – ensuring that you’re ready for opportunities that come your way and having enough space in your life to say “yes” to the ones that fire you up.
