Know How to Pick Your Battles

Life involves a series of changes and choices so it only makes sense to choose your battles wisely. We often get hung up disputing insignificant things when there are more important matters that beg for our attention. No matter how well-meaning you are in fighting the battles you think are of paramount importance, sometimes the battle is won when you back up and let situations run its course. By doing so, you will be far more effective in getting your point across.

Fighting battles out of mere challenge is wasted time and energy. If the world came to an end today, would those battles have the same significance? If the battle is not beneficial in some way and the stakes are high pending the outcome, use good judgment and avoid the conflict altogether.

Life rarely goes the exact way we may have in mind and there will always be people who disagree with you or do things differently. Therefore, reevaluate your priorities and understand there will be battles not worth arguing over, battles you can’t do anything about, and battles that are frankly none of your business.
