Sometimes, it’s worth paying for convenience.
Transferring your old number to a new phone provider all your contacts don’t have to re-enter your new number might be a convenience worth paying for.
And sometimes it’s not worth paying for convenience.
Like 20k a year to network, in the form of beautifully packaged professional programs, when you could get similar value from a few hours of outreach on LinkedIn.
Which convenience should you pay for?
It’s ultimately determined by what you value.
