It’s a way, but is it the best way?
Sometimes it doesn’t matter and other times that question makes all the difference.
Is that the best way to fry an egg? Meh, who cares. I’m hungry and don’t really care.
Is this the best way to reduce our impact on the environment? Yes, recycling is certainly a way to do so, but is it the best use of our collective consciousness?
Know when to optimize and when to settle. In other words, pick the arenas where you’ll strive for the highest possible quality, and pick the arenas where you’re okay with “okay.”
