The Golden Mean
The Golden Mean is like a teeter-totter. When two kids of equal weight sit on either end, the teeter-totter is perfectly balanced. But if one child is heavier, the teeter-totter tips too much in one direction. Similarly, when we focus too much on one aspect of our lives, such as work or leisure, we lose our balance.
