People speak of finding balance.  To me, that’s a misplaced ambition.  If you have balance, you do everything okay.  But to excel at your craft, you need obsessive, unbridled fanaticism.  Not only does excellence require such commitment, it demands it.  A life worth living is frenetic, disjointed, breakneck, and quite fantastic.  Balance doesn’t lead to happiness – impassioned dedication to one’s life purpose does.
