Settling for less

Settling for less. It’s something we do all to often. Unless, of course, it’s something we really care about. Like video games. Like binge watching something on Netflix or whatever service we have. You know – the really, really important things?

settling for lessSo then why do we settle for less on the things that truly are important? The things that last beyond the next couple ours. Or even beyond today. Even next year seems to far away to care about.

And yet, we should.

We must.

Unless we don’t care about what happens beyond the next few seconds.  Or less.
