I’m working on an iPhone camera comparison video that’s taking a ridiculous amount of time to edit. On Friday night, I’d pencilled out the evening to work on the video, but a close friend came over to practice for a singing audition. We ended up chatting until midnight, and then decided to relive our university days and ended up at McDonald’s in Cambridge town centre at 2am.

When he asked to come over, a part of me thought ‘argh I need to get this video done’. But another part of me remembered the sage wisdom that relationships are the only things that matter in life. I realised I was coming close to chasing the sirens of #productivity #hustle and #grind for their own sake.

So I hung out with my friend. The iPhone video could wait.
