This reminds me of something my dad observed about traveling in a foreign country on vacation. Most people would try to cram in as many things as possible, fearing they’d miss out if they didn’t. Dad would instead say, “The point isn’t to see or do everything, which is impossible anyway. The point is to make the most of your time. To plan a few things and make sure you thoroughly enjoy the visit. That way you also leave stuff to see next time.”
