Beware of the “Just (five more minutes)” excuse

Whenever you find yourself rationalizing an action with, “Just a little more” or the like, STOP! It’s probably a bad idea.

Example: “I’ll windsurf in the the hot Okinawan sun just 15 more minutes.” 30 years later, I’m still paranoid of being in the sun and skin cancer. Not to mention the extra age spots and over-thin skin.
