If you were given the choice of wifi or water, which would you choose?  I certainly hope you said water as it’s necessary to maintain life.

They made the decision month after month of wifi over water. Maybe you’re not at that level, maybe you’re just choosing wifi over your wife. Either way, it’s time to prioritize!

Rank #11: Facts vs. Feelings

Podcast cover

In today`s episode, Gerritt tells us how to prevent getting taken advantage of. He outlines the difference between facts and feelings. People primarily focus on emotions, but there is a cost. Concentrating on facts will take you to your real destination while feelings will always lead you somewhere you should probably not be going. Gerritt says that when you act on feelings, then you need to find out the facts. Confront the person who irritated you and find out why, that way you will operate out of real information and not out of mere feelings and guesswork.
