There’s a saying in German: “Man kann nicht auf allen Hochzeiten tanzen.” It means “You can’t dance at all the weddings.” As much as you want to, and you may have even been invited, you can’t do it all. You’re going to have to make some sacrifices and prioritize what’s most important.
Those of you who have trouble with this principle are encouraged to watch this very important self-improvement video, produced by the fine people at Sesame Street. One of the greatest Sesame St. segments ever, i dare say.
