This first hit me when I was laid off a few years ago and money was tight. I had to be super selective about who I went out with when I knew that money would be involved.
So I created a 2-question test for myself and it went like this: “Self, will this person either help you find work or be a lot of fun? If one or the other was true, I’d go. If not, I’d tell myself, “Stay home.”
I used this quite a bit and most times it led to the right decisions.
Well, now I’m gainfully employed again (thank God), but I still use this test. Because just as valuable as my money is to me, so is my time. And I don’t have much of it to waste.
