Last Sunday I was supposed to attend a Sports Event held by my company. I have even signed up for two separate competitions months ago. My manager told me I should go to create more exposure for myself.
I didn't go.
"Aren't you going to your company's sports event?" Dad asked me as he opened the door of my room.
"er...ermm" I wasn't fully awake. It was like ten past seven on a Sunday morning.
To be honest, I've just had an 11-hour shift on Saturday and I never see myself as a sports person. Perhaps I'd just want some more sleep.
"I'm driving the M5...bye.." said dad as he closed the door.
"dad...Dad! wait DAD!" I shouted! "wait for me I'm coming!"
'I will be warming it up. wait by the car.'
An annual company sports event doesn't get me out of bed but a Morning Drive with Dad, DOES!
I guess we all have hidden priorities as we make decisions along our lives. And I guess you can never get the ultimate best or the worst ever after-effect from every decision you have made/will be making.
Be true to yourself. If I feel a precious Sunday morning with my Dad is more important to 'anything else', then it probably does.
I am not saying you should bail events like I did and not feel guilty about it. Please don't! Be respectful and honour to your commitments no doubt.
