I definitely agree with the advice related to focusing on the key activities you enjoy the most. It reminds me of similar good advice from a book called "Essentialism," which is the basic mantra of "if it's not a clear yes then it's a clear no." That's what got me to clear up some time and resources in my life earlier on by cancelling my guitar lessons. It was tough, but it was taking time away from things I liked even more and ultimately was the right choice.
