The Four Burners Theory: The Downside of Work-Life Balance
James Clear

I love this! You’re so right in asserting that we should just “accept our limitations”. I agree, one burner or two will usually be burning higher, given the season. As Americans we are conditioned to strive for all four quadrants perfectly and at all times. That leaves many feeling like a failure or that we’ve fallen short somehow. I don’t have family and really just a few friends I spend time with so you would think that would leave me with full burners on career and health! But, with more time I feel less balanced! Geez, we’re never satisfied are we. lol

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
