1 - I don't work out as much as I used to. Due to the time lost. I make it up in the winter months. (or at least that's the plan).
2 - I used to do recreational skydives on the weekends in the morning and teach it in the afternoons through sunset (harness holds on students and in-air instruction).
Now I leave early to play 18 and when I get back to the DZ I'm there just in time to teach. Since one round of golf is cheaper than a morning of fun jumps, and I get paid to jump with students, it nets out really nice for me. I get to do two things I like, and I end up making money (net on the weekend) instead of behind.
3 - I am losing a 'little' family time, but the wife is learning to play, so we'll end up likely spending more time together once she gets better and the daughter leaves for college.
I think the overall final result will be a positive life impact.
I'm only really distressed to find out that I now actually enjoy watching PGA golf on TV. That's just plain wrong.
