Those of you who you know me well know that I disdain the entire “Balance Movement” with its focus on balance above all. Where is the balance in Stephen Wolfram squirrelling himself away in his attic for fifteen years to write his canon “A New Kind of Science” or in any serious athlete’s pursuit of their goal, in the single-minded devotion of a mother campaigning to find a cure for the disease that ails her child, or in the life of anybody you actually remember for having changed the world?

And I see that Michael Gerber, author of The E-Myth Revisited, agrees with me in his new article “Balance, Schmalance; I’ll take passion instead“. No matter which side of the debate you’re on, it’s a fun read. I recommend it.
