Kiwi had to bounce early but Whitney and I had a conversation about Balance. We talked about how, when you’re balanced, things feel smooth and easy. If that gives you anxiety, then it’s worth examining the thing that makes you feel that way. The visual of riding a bike helps. When you’re riding smoothly, effortless, you’re balanced. But you can’t do that while standing still – balance requires velocity, but not acceleration. What we’re all seeking is balance – between work, family, friends, fitness, spritual, etc.

Great work men!
