The Question of the week: How to find balance in life?
I have a small dog he is sick, He came already ill from a breeder. And he is consuming quite a lot of time. Making me rethink some my activities. Plus also the time I am spending on self-development.
You often hear that you should spend time on self-development etc. And I think it is true. But life is not so simple.
Maaret argues that willpower is about choosing long time benefit over short time gain. I see her point, but I think willpower is more needed to find balance.
It is easy to indulge in self-development of skill for future, by staying the long night. And suffering next that poor performance cause of lack of sleep. But that lack of sleep has a lot of nasty long-term consequences too.
The question is where the happy balance is?
I think the only answer I have is – There is no balance, and there never will be, you will have always worked hard to fix your position in search of that balance.
