The Dilemma

I had/have a choice to make. Uphold a commitment or celebrate my brother's birthday with family. The call came last night. Meet at a restaurant on Sunday afternoon. The answer came out of my mouth: We are in Norwell.

Was that the correct answer? Helping friends is a commitment. Also knowing we won't be able to get to the job site the following three weeks for other family events... All scheduled a week and months before.

Where does being flexible come into the picture? It's interesting. If you have my word or my promise, I guess it's good I won't back down and toss you over. But life is never so neatly planned.

Time for intense creativity? Time for rethinking priorities? Time for compromise? Time for convictions? All these make sense, and et compete with each other. Good luck.

Personally, would lean on intense creativity and look for an answer that is invisible at the moment.
