Balance is a pivot point …
BORING! BORING! BORING!
I prefer to live my life orbiting the point of balance - rather than sitting on it. For me, a bit of hard work makes that time off all the more fulfilling and enjoyable. I could think of nothing worse than going out fly fishing every day, and every day catching a ten pound fish. Routine is good – in fact I am to a large extent, a creature of habit – but a little adventure and ‘out-of-balance’ – extreme – pushing-the-envelope action can be very rewarding also.
I think that BALANCE is a pivot point around which we swing and pendulum. In theory, it is exactly what we are looking for – in practice though, I think that perfect balance lacks MOMENTUM – lacks the high’s and lows, the hot and cold, the feasts and famines that propel us forward in our thinking and in our lives. What makes the ride fun - is what we feel as we whizz past the balance point. A see-saw that didn't give is the high's and low's - would be a pretty lame ride.
