Can you have your cake and eat it too?

choices decisions either or inspiration motivation options Aug 03, 2021

This week’s message is very special. Why? This is the first message that was inspired by something that was shared with me by none other than Mrs. Da Fingaz (my wife). 😊

There are countless pieces online that discuss the concept of having your cake AND eating it too.

Some say that you can’t have your cake and eat it too. It’s EITHER one OR the other. 

Some say you can have your cake AND eat it too. 

I say: it depends. 

In some situations, we can have our cake AND eat it too. In other situations it’s EITHER have the cake OR eat it. 

We have to shift our thinking and change the OR to AND

You’re probably thinking, what does that have to do with anything? 

Have you ever weighed multiple options, feeling like you had to choose one? In reality, maybe you could have chosen more than one option. 

Who’s to say that you have to order your burgers AND fries from the same place?

Maybe you like McDonald’s burgers AND you like Chick-Fil-A fries. Why not go for both? (This newsletter is not sponsored by McDonald’s. Or Chick-Fil-A. Not yet). 

Maybe you’re deciding between going to Disney World OR going on a Disney Cruise. Why not consider both (other than $$$)? (This newsletter is also not sponsored by Disney. Not yet. But if you are considering a vacation, I know a great travel agent!).

Why do you have to like EITHER country music OR r&b music? 

From the music production side: Who’s to say you have to use the drums sounds from the same sound library?

Maybe the kick from one sound library AND the snare from another library works better for the song you’re working on.

These are just small examples that hopefully open up a world of possibilities when we have options to choose from. 

Change our OR to AND.

Have a great week!

P.S. Before I end this message, did you know that August just so happens to be one of the best months ever? You know why?

Because it’s my birth month!
