Is the Juice worth the Squeeze

I heard an interesting phrase last week: The juice isn’t worth the squeeze. It was in reference to deciding if making the effort to start a new project was wise. It caught my attention because it could be applied to many situations.

We may have unlimited ideas, but not every great idea is worth our time and attention.

Your work – Whether you own your own business or flip hamburgers for a living, decide if the long hours are laying the foundation for your future. If not, what changes might you make?

Your image – From plastic surgery to flashy jewelry, we all enjoy a little self-indulgence at times.  Unfortunately, the pleasure derived from spending a significant amount on appearance can be short-lived.  Contemplate alternatives when trying to better yourself: volunteer, visit museums, learn a foreign language, or listen to thought-provoking podcasts.

Mistakes – Big or small, we all make them; what matters are the lessons we learn. When given the opportunity to measure options, make choices that will make you proud.

At the end of the day, what helps you decide if your choices are the right ones? Is the juice worth the squeeze?”

The road is easier together,
