I’m the perfect example of why you should never wait to do something because so much can be taken from you instantly.
Story: I used to travel a lot, personally and professionally, and always stayed at Marriott hotels. As such I accumulated a lot of points, free night certificates, status etc. Now I would use my points every so often so they weren’t massively stacking up.
In August 2018 I was in Dublin for work and Kevin flew over. I decided to use a good chunk of my points for two nights in a hotel (I had an apartment for work). I didn’t know it when I booked it but it was SUPER fancy; nicer than what we deserve at this age.
But what if I’d decided to save my points for another time? They’d be still banked (or lost).
I believe in being sensible but also enjoying life versus just waiting for a more deserving time in the future.
