I have three siblings. My sister makes music. My older brother is a classical conductor, and my younger brother is a mixing engineer.
When someone asks if you'd like cake or pie, why not say you want cake and pie?
Also, I'm always learning better and better how to prioritize and how to leave certain things for the next day.
