=167= Melancholic Reflections: All

I am sorry, but as a human, you can’t have it all.

You cannot have many friends and expect much time alone. You can’t be fast and expect power. You can’t eat a lot, not exercising and expect a good body. You can’t have like 5 ministries and be able to contribute to all three well. You can’t serve two masters.

Of course there are people with great capacity, but getting great capacity isn’t gotten overnight. Just ask these people and they will tell you that they spent lots of time learning before they took on so much. You can’t have all but you can have a lot, if you work at it a bit at a time.

You have to choose which to take and which to throw. Which to protect and which not to. Which to learn, which not to. It is a choice. You choose.
