Likely as a result of some horrific personality flaw, I focused on these with an almost OCD like neurosis. My goal has been to provide practical advice based on nearly 20 years as a lawyer with the theme of brevity being a good thing. In trying to decide what practical advice to give as we approach the holiday season, I realized that my theme of brevity should not continue unabated throughout the year. At times, brevity is a mistake.
Brevity is a mistake when you could be spending time with your family. Brevity is a mistake when you could instead spend some more time with your spouse or significant other. Brevity is a tragic mistake if you allow it to rule your life to the point that you look back at a life of brief moments and realize that you are not in any of the photos of your family or friends doing fun things that took a long time.
One great way to capture some time with family and friends is to make cookies. Yes, I said it, cookies.
