Words from Mark Borchardt, an unusual source of wisdom that reminded me how poorly I balance what’s important.
I chip away at the integrity of my ambitions to maintain meaningful relationships, and chip away at my meaningful relationships to maintain my ambitions. Sounds balanced, but it never is. Always leaning too much one way or the other. I just can’t find it.
It could be argued that I want too much. But is there such a thing as too much, if one is willing to do the work?
I really don’t know.
