Is balance overrated?
In posts #12, 40 & 41 I have been exploring the concept of potentially competing Visions. Specifically I was examining how a romantic relationship or lack there of may aid or hinder ones ability to live his or her work Vision. When I last checked in I decided that this question of balance would have to be answered in time. It is a thing one must live more than think or plan. Then I came across a quote by Coco Chanel,
“There is no time for cut-and-dried monotony. There is time for work. And time for love. That leaves no other time!”
I like this ethos. This may very well be the answer. It reminds me of a phrase a friend of mine uses. He calls it “living out loud”. Others may call it “working hard and playing hard”. I call it “living my Vision to its fullest expression”. Perhaps this notion of balance is overrated. Why not live it all to its fullest?
Work hard, Play hard and Love hard.
