Not that important

“I don’t have time for doing a workout today.”

You probably don’t.

Or do you but you’ve got more important things to do? Or maybe you’re just happy you’ve found an excuse. Or not.

“Doing a workout today is not that important.”

“Spending a few hours with my kids this evening is not that important.”

“Refining the pitch deck is not that important.”

And we can even reverse it:

“Watching three episodes of this TV show is rather important.”

“Jumping on Instagram right now is rather important.”
