  1. Yes, I do drop commitments. In juggling too many balls, I render myself ineffective. The challenge is always: which commitments stay and which go?

What’s the point in freeing ourselves of worldly things or creating financial independence if we’re forced to experience that freedom caged inside an unhealthy body?
