Should everything be done in moderation?. #[They say “do everything in moderation” when it comes to decisions about how to spend your time and your life – do you agree? Or are there some things that should be done at the extremes, or perhaps that are truly are all or nothing propositions]?
In general I would agree that one should do everything in moderation. But when it comes to things like commitment to your spouse and family, devotion to God, and taking responsibility for your work, welll….If by moderation it means to be moderately (or kind of) committed to these things, then I would disagree. On the other hand if being committed to God or family means your responsibilities get completely neglected, that would be wrong.
If I am discussing moderation in terms of social activities, eating, having a glass of wine, or just chilling at the beach—well if i do those things to excesss and it gets in the way or my relationships and responsibiities, then it is obvious that I need to reduce those activities so that I can keep my priorities straight.
Do you suppose the longhorns in this photo did something to excess, or did they use moderation?
