When it comes to life, it’s all about balance. At least that’s what I’ve come to conclude based on my current life experiences. As with anything, it’s subject to change.
For every piece of advice I’ve read or received, I’ve heard the opposite. Given the context, they usually both make sense to me. When a Texan tells me to eat steak, that’s great advice. So is the advice from a vegan yogi not to eat steak.
I’ve noticed that when someone gives advice, they tend to have needed to follow it in the past. People who’ve overworked themselves before tend to talk about the importance of life-work balance. Someone who recently got off the couch to start pursuing their dream will talk about the importance of working hard to get what you want.
Optimism and realism, efficiency and patience, organization and flexibility, confidence and humility, curiosity and content. Those are a just few things I find myself constantly trying to balance.
