A lot of life seems to be about trade-offs.
Experimentation / Focus
Enough / Perfect
Altruism / Business
Creativity / Critique
Smart / Casual
Risk / Safety
Self / Others
This / That
These things aren’t always at odds.
Some are opposites, but a lot are just adjacent.
Balancing and maintaining both is possible, if you really want to find a way to do so.
It’s just hard.
The funny thing is that sitting in the middle ground between the two is often not the way to go.
That’s the trap.
