Too true. If I had a nickel for ever time someone complained to about how they don’t make enough money immediately after telling me about the new 90" television they just bought, I’d have enough for a 90" television.
Control what you can control and learn to roll with the rest. If you want to watch television after work every night instead of writing, you can’t complain that your blog is floundering. Cut out of work early at every opportunity? No wonder you don’t get the promotion. Every action has a consequence.
