There's a fine line that we wish to walk--between persistence and adaptation, between the new and the old, between rigidity and flexibility.
It seems to me that one of the most difficult things to accomplish in life is finding that balance between the alternatives.
Life doesn't present us with black and white at all times. Sure, some decisions are clear; we know we want one and not the other.
But so many things are not: where is the clear line to draw in many of our day to day decisions? Caution vs. decision; due diligence vs. impulse Our interpersonal interactions are rarely clear cut.
Finding the balance point between the two alternatives is a trick that I'm still working on. If you have any insight, I'd love to hear it.
