Opportunity costs in life


Eric Kim recently wrote a great blog post titled “opportunity costs in street photography”, but it’s more like an awesome post about opportunity costs in life.

I’ve recently been thinking about “opportunity costs” in my life. For every ounce of energy I spend on something (lusting after a new camera, wanting a new smartphone, etc) is an ounce of energy I could have invested elsewhere (reading a book, writing an article, spending time with loved ones).

There are lots of opportunity costs in our lifes, both in terms of time+effort and money.

The sad thing in life is that we can’t have it all. We only have limited resources. We need to choose wisely.
