It’s been a while since I’ve done one of these, but I figured after a small unofficial break I might as well start up our daily scribble thingy once more. Today we talk about balance. It’s super convenient how you can chime in to almost any debate with the simple statement: It’s all about finding a balance.” Try it. It really helps you find yourself needing to speak up during an intense debate you weren’t listening to. But “practical applications” aside, that statement really holds some truth. Balance is essential to all things. Balance is pretty much always in demand and never in supply. We require a balance between things like passion and restraint. Emotion and logic. Skepticism and blind faith.
Without it (balance) we find ourselves tipping too far to one side … and that is never healthy.
