Doing or Being

If there is a choice between rushing to do something, or staying and being, I think the wise choice is to stay and be.

Last night I had the option of going to White Night in Melbourne. It would have been an injection to the creative juices to see all that was going on. However I was feeling tired, and I knew I had a big week ahead in which I wanted to be at my best for my family.

White Night lost out, and I got a good night's rest and I feel ready for what is to come this week.

I remember on a trip to San Francisco I took the opposite approach - driving to see the Muir Woods when there was no time to do this. Staying and being in somewhere like Union Square would have been a much better option.
