We can have both, but we’re not always good at managing “both” in ways that are effective.
I can lose weight and eat dessert every day.
I can finish reading this business book and dive into Facebook every night.
I can tidy the house and binge on Netflix every spare moment.
For each of these, it’s possible to have both, but the odds for success are not ideal.
More often, we’re faced with the question, “Which do I want more?” because we can’t reasonably have both.
