What else could you be doing right now?

Instead of reading this blog, how else could you be spending your time?  

We have a choice in each moment to decide how we fill the precious moments of our lives.

Opportunity cost is defined as, "the loss of potential gain from other alternatives when one alternative is chosen."  Basically, when you make a decision to do X, you are simultaneously making a decision not to do Y, Z, etc.  When you decide to sleep in, you are also deciding not to exercise or give yourself time to eat breakfast.  When you choose to watch four hours of television, you are also choosing not to spend quality time with your children.

It's also important to note that by "not" making a decision you ARE making a decision.  You are choosing not to choose.

The good news is that it's up to us.  As Kelly Starrett quotes his wife, "make a better decision!"  Life is simply a series of decisions, one after the other.
