12 Reasons Why Balance is Bullshit
It’s the mantra around here: Balance is Bull$h!t, and we say it loud and proud. Why, you ask? Here are 12 reasons why the aforementioned slogan should be a part of your daily affirmations.
- Balance is an illusion, so why try to achieve something unreal?
- It takes away the attention from what you really need and want to be doing.
- Following your passion is about eagerness and excitement—enjoy it!
- Working is a lifestyle in which you make tough decisions daily.
- Your life is not about perfecting a balancing act.
- Aiming for balance will stunt your creative and entrepreneurial growth.
- Your ‘secret sauce’ recipe (your version of balance) is your own, not one-size-fits-all.
- Perfect is boring.
- Everyone has their own version of success, create your own.
- You can prioritize more clearly when you’re not blinded by guilt.
- Having it all is possible without forcing an arbitrary balance.
- You can’t do it all, but you can certainly have it all!
Next time you find yourself battling the balance monster, remember that it’s bull$h!t and you have proof to back it up.
