SPC #10 – balance

Self Portrait Challenge, Oct. ’06 – imperfection, week 4

I am way too good at singleminded focus, at least in certain situations. And I’m terrible at giving appropriate time to each part of my life.

An old friend of mine says, “Juggling IS balance.” I’m not sure if this is technically true, but it might be a useful metaphor. Wearing multiple hats, keeping all the balls in the air, balancing work and play and family and all that other stuff … it’s a goal I want.

Unfortunately, I don’t know how to juggle — literally or figuratively.

But I want to learn. And hopefully with a sense of humor.

  1. you are too funny!

  2. I’ve found that Koosh balls make awesome learning tools for juggling — they’re a good weight (lighter and you just don’t get the physical feedback), and the little strings make a direct hit unnecessary.
