What A Load of Sh*t

How many times have you heard a friend, mentor, advisor, parent, or loved one say these cherished words of advice: “Stay balanced”. What a load of shit that is?

Yes, you should absolutely find multiple avenues to dive into throughout your days. Putting 100% of you into one thing is not what I am suggesting. But whether you are working your job, in school, or freelancing doing any sort of alternatives, allow me to make one suggestion…

“Balanced” is not the right word. As you divide your day, the same 24 hours we all have, do one thing. Be part-time fully engaged. I learned this the hard way.

Whatever you are doing whether it’s work or leisure, romantic or political, business or family, vacation or any of the variety, just be all in at that moment. Part-time fully engaged means, as simply as, whenever you choose to do something, be focused and engaged in it. So if you are relaxing, relax to the utmost of your potential. If you are going on a date, be the best you can be. If you are working, focus.

Just go all in when you do anything. I mean, why wouldn’t you? Isn’t that the point of living?
