Being sentimental or practical?801

Forum Owner Belew private msg quote post Address this user
2 phone calls.

One wants me to help sell a class that he wants me to teach as part of a team.

the other wants me to attend his wedding.

One is money in...maybe.

The other is money out...certainly.

One is practical. The other is sentimental.

Which should I do?

How do you decide?

I would ask :How close are you to the person getting married and will you regret this relationship if you were to bypass the wedding? :-)

I think money is important but so are the important people in our social network.

A buddy of mine taught me the nicest thing I can do for him is NOT invite him to my wedding.

* It kills a day
* You gotta get 'dressed up'
* Someone's gonna get drunk and fall into the cake
* Everybody starves while the photographer pretends he's Ansel Adams

So when I get wedding invites, I respond with 'can't make it, but lets celebrate with a lovely dinner after the honeymoon.'

I get to hear Alll the stories. Love the stories.

In a previous life I chased the almighty dollar, I worked away from home for months at a time and I earned a massive salary ... and what did it get me, a divorce and outta the lives of my children full time ...

Ask yourself these two questions.

1. Can you make money on other days?
2. Can you share in your friends day on another day?
