Definition of best to be used in this debate: Something that excels all others and is of the highest quality and desire. ie. saving the most delicious food for the end of the meal.
For one thing, saving the best for last is just developing your mindset into always using the worse the materials or eating the worst food first and not using things that are more high quality.
Take the case of the farming grandfather of Amy Cooper Rodriguez who always saved all the best materials in his collection at "the good barn" and over time guess what happened when he died and his children decided to sell the materials in "the good farm"? They had gone bad!
When you are at the dinner table and you want to save your favorite food for last don't you realize that your favorite food will taste after you're more full?
Or that you might not even want to eat your favorite food because you're full?
Or instead of using an old run-down deck of cards to do card tricks you could use a better deck of cards and make your card tricks more fluid and flawless.
Best doesn't always mean the most effective use of your time.With this in mind when picking the best people who you care about get hurt.Therefore saving the best for last is more helpful to your social circle however big it might be.People always have people they care about. In order to make sure they are taken care of there needs must be met instead of yours. Prioristing the value of your happiness over others well being leads them feeling unhappy and being unhealthy which impacts your happiness and can dampen the best thing you started with.Best doesn't always mean the most effective use of your time.With this in mind when picking the best the journey is cut short.With this in mind skills that could be gained waiting for the best will not be learnt. You will simply get what you want.The journey is important. It can be a learning process which can help with other things in life. Take for example driving to a different state. You find out the way you went through was slow and had a lot of traffic while another road had a gas station with things you can eat. In the Journey you have learnt a more effective way of driving to a different state while also having sometime to think about things while on your way there.
You can have something nice but still have the nicest be for later.
Nice doesn't equate to healthy like with cakes, chocolate and junk food which would mean you are for people being really ill and living a bad life eventually given the best food would eventually become a curse.
That is the fault of being a bad business person. If the person waited until her work was finished and sold it when she was free then it would've been the best thing to do but she didn't. She instead didn't even save the best for last instead the best wasn't even saved because it became degraded after they found it.
Pace yourself better. Instead of picking food that will ruin the experience. Pick ones that don't so the best for last isn't ruined. This isn't the fault of the best of last position.
You are simply using the worst forever here
because when you pick a deck you get accustomed to it
Not realize there are better and just stick with it.
Nope, best means what it said in the description.
But what happens when the "nice" thing starts to deteriorate?
I know what, having already built your mindset around saving the best for last you'd buy another "nice" thing and still be saving the "nicest" thing.
But inevitably both the "nice" thing and the "nicest" thing would deteriorate, leaving you with, you guessed it, nothing.
let's say you had two handcrafted wooden mugs one of them was an antique mug and the other was just some random cheap flea market product, and you saved the antique mug instead of using it. But then when you're cheap flea market mug breaks and you get another cheap mug, your antique mug is just sitting there busy gathering mold. And finally, you're old grandfather's antique mug gathers enough mold and becomes rotten you'll just have to live with the fact that you've never used it and on top of all that the cheap mug's always bound to break leaving you to have to buy mug after mug after mug each mug no matter how high quality never the same as your the "nicest" mug.
But people have different definitions of nice food, for all you know My favorite food is Brussel sprouts on whole-grain bread topped with natural ranch! (It's not by the way)
Also, grammar mistake here.
The purpose of the analogy was to emphasize the mistake the grandfather made, which was saving the best for last, and you just supported my point by saying how bad of a business plan this was.
Pace yourself better?!?!?!?!?!?! You're supposed to be convincing us of why you should save the best for last not how.
C'mon do you really think that when I'm at the dinner table I'm thinking about if I'm pacing myself right? Heck! I don't think even any of us are thinking about that!
That's what saving the best for last does to your mindset, also this is contradictory to when you said: "You can have something nice but still have the nicest be for later." As the "nice" thing is the "worst" thing.
Go search up Cardistry and tell me how those companies function if people don't switch decks every other day.
Grammar error and people who save the best for last do realize there are better they just don't want it.
"Something that excels all others and is of the highest quality and desire"Highest quality is dependent on the measurement you use since you didn't give one. I open to this interpretation and do please challenge on you not clearly laying what you meant with the highest quality.
At least with mine more important things like taking care of bills can be done before you would have to worry about what are you going to do after the things that made you happy don't make you happy.
Whether or not I have answer doesn't make my side better or worse than yours so you asked a question that is meaningless to the discussion.
What happens when you are too busy enjoying life to pay your bills? How does your view help with that situation?
I can start with the starters then the mains then my favorite part which is desserts. The positive of course with leaving desserts last is that I will actually finish healthy that can prolong my life
whereas you are too busy eating cake then moving onto to other things to enjoy instead of eating vegetables.
Do you not see this problem will arise with you earlier?
That would mean people would have to face that disappointment quicker and if they don't fill that happiness in your have given their existence sadness for a much more longer time than I have.
I can't engage with this hypothetical
Even if they do they simply do it for the brief time they have bought it. Then they simply get accustomed and not realize they have it.
Your starting with the best only lasts for the moment of buying the product and possibly using it at the start.
The person following me can find enjoyment by striving to keep the mug in pristine condition while also learning about the mug instead of simply carrying on with their life not caring about the mug they bought.
Not my fault your definition is subjective because you didn't decide what measurement you would use for the highest quality item. So since best is subjective the person who follows what I say can simply add in what they like and prepare for what they want while carrying on working.
Also, grammar mistake here.
Also didn't engage with the health problem I brought about with the best. There are very minuscule amount of people who like Brussel sprouts over chocolate. For you to use such a minority case example goes to show how little your lifestyle would help best serve humanity. I on the other hand like with other people that can follow can still healthy food while leaving chocolate for last.
Grandfather's fault was the bad business plan. It wasn't leaving the best till last.
You don't understand the meal context where leaving the best till last doesn't mean they leave the chocolate until the moment they die, it means right at the end of their meal.
The grandfather could've simply did what he wanted in a time frame that put the stress of more important things to rest like crops, bills and restocking before actually doing what he liked the most.
I can choose the time frame
instead of using your extreme hypothetical like your idea is that we should do everything we hate but in the moment we are almost dead enjoy what we like the most.
You take the most insane position of mine while I don't do the same.
This is unfair and uncharitable then you have the gall to question and exclamation mark me?
I have been cordial while you have given me extreme hypotheticals and ways you have you are annoyed. This isn't conducive to what we are discussing.
An anecdote? This neither bolsters your point or even attempts to. I think it is safe for me to assume that you ought want everyone to follow your system but giving your personal experience doesn't help that. In order to demonstrate to be good you would have to show the positive versus mine but this isn't how you do it.
It would be a contradiction if my position was do the nicest things and wait for the nicest thing as well but it isn't. My position is that you can do nice things but it is best to leave the nicest things last.
Here my opponent WP is pretty much stating with enough time you can't learn a new skill.
If these things can be learnt so can Cardistry. WP denying this has shown a flaw in his argument even though this really doesn't matter to saving the best till last. So basically I am commenting on a non-sequitur showing WP's position on something other than the debate. I hope people understand that bad ideas can lead to other bad ideas.
the exclamation mark and question mark while also how well I was able to demonstrate my side to be better from WP's rebuttals.
You are simply clutching at straws here trying to point out non-existent flaws in my definition of highest quality instead of making worthwhile arguments or points
It's not meaningless it's a refute to you saying that you can have something nice and have the nicest. And whether you have an answer does because this shows that you're going around this question and you don't have a counter-point.
"What happens when you are too busy enjoying life to pay your bills?" What????? What do you mean with this analogy, this has nothing to do with the topic, what are you talking about????????
So now saving the best for last prolongs your lifespan?
Nevermind that this insult is bad conduct, it makes literally zero grammatical sense and is terrible.
No crapnnuggets you can't. It's a hypothetical analogy it's supposed to demonstrate something not stimulate or engage you.
Ok, yes let's just say they save it well, but why save it? Why not not save the best for last and seize the day and use the cup?
