The whole of life
Everything has an influence on everything else. All the seemingly separate aspects of life are tightly intertwined.
When setting priorities and making choices, consider the whole of life. Attempting to play off one thing against another will never work for very long.
When you shortchange one part of your life, other things suffer. When you work to add value somewhere in your world, that value is reflected in other places too.
Eventually, the good, sincere, authentic things you do will exhibit their influence throughout your world. There's a way to live through each experience that will enhance and improve all the other experiences.
Think of your decisions not as discreet events, but rather as interrelated expressions of who you truly are. Realize that each action has an influence that spreads far beyond its original context.
Live as though the universe is connected to itself in ways that you cannot begin to imagine. Know that what you do is not just for here and now, that it contributes everywhere and always to the whole of life.
"Not everything that counts can be counted, and not everything that can be counted counts."
