#006 | What If… Balance is an Illusion?

This episode challenges the conventional understanding of balance, proposing that it might be an illusion.

Through a thoughtful dialogue, Monique and Colin explore the dynamic nature of balance, its impact on our lives, and the possibility that seeking balance is more about embracing life’s ebbs and flows rather than achieving a static state.

  3. The concept of life as a balance sheet, with inputs and outcomes influencing our sense of balance.
  4. The role of seasons in life as an analogy for understanding balance.
  5. Emotional and capacity management as essential for navigating life’s complexities.
