I like very much today’s article thesis:

“The best and safest thing is to keep a balance in your life, acknowledge the great powers around us and in us. If you can do that, and live that way, you are really a wise man." ~ Euripides

“Balancing responsibility and adventure can be a challenge in itself but finding just the right balance is quite the struggle for many of us.”

I think that the balance between them could be an area in which one’s balance is contained, instead of a single static point. If we call it a “balance zone”, where in it one’s balance is now depends on various external factors (e.g. does current market conditions offer more or less opportunities) and internal factors (e.g. level of self-awareness, emotional intelligence, etc.).


The Financial Philosopher


I like your idea of a "balance zone." There are two types of actions: 1) Proactive and 2) Reactive.

We have much more control over our proactive actions than our reactive ones; therefore, your "balance zone" would seem to accommodate, or prepare room for, our reactive actions. Rather than pinpointing the appropriate balance of behavior, we may create boundaries to operate within...

Thanks for the thoughts...
