… is a fact of life.
- It means if you’re not alert, you’ll miss out.
- It doesn’t mean that it’s okay to snatch something out of someone’s hand just because they’re not looking, or that we shouldn’t set something aside for someone who’s running late.
- It means that if you’re not in the game, you can’t score.
- It doesn’t mean that we all have to play the same game, or keep score in the same way (or at all), or that other people’s score should be important to you.
You snooze, you lose…
Except, of course, when a nap’s just what you need.
