It’s okay to not focus all of your energy on growth and all that. I never have at any point — I’m constantly doing stuff I enjoy more along the way. The balance is key.
Tonight, something cool happens. I’ve been a sports fan since I was like 5, and concurrently two awesome sporting events are happening: the Stanley Cup Final (Go Pens!) and the NBA Finals.
Most of you are probably aware of the NBA Finals, given the climatic trilogy we’re about to see end. The Golden State Warriors and the Cleveland Cavaliers have a score to settle, and what a battle it should be. The Cup Final features an upstart Nashville Predators club facing the defending champion Pittsburgh Penguins. It’s grit vs starpower.
I really enjoy getting my head into sports because of the wonderful relief it can bring from life. Sports should be a distraction, and what a great distraction they can be. So don’t feel bad about enjoying the Crosbys and LeBrons of the world — it all can serve a purpose.
