Not with me, of course.

Just in general.

I see people all the time spending their lives fighting for:

  • Control over Facebook’s policies on privacy, security and functions
  • Revenge on someone who did them wrong (Like in the Wild West days)
  • Sympathy when their car breaks down, or their bike gets nicked
  • Attention for their weight-loss coffee over the next person’s
  • Contact with children involving years of litigation

I’m not saying those things aren’t worth fighting for, ever.

But before you start scrapping over anything, assess these three metrics:

1. Level of possible gains
2. Likelihood of winning
3. Cost in time and money

Finally, ask this:

Could any alternative use of my time and money be more useful to me?
