The Rewards of Imbalance

@ VOL 14 ON AUG 27, 2015

"I oversubscribe on life. I do more than I can do. And it's exactly the way I want it."

In The Rewards of Imbalance from PechaKucha Night Madison Vol. 14. Greg Tracy tries to convince us that doing more than we think we can do and sprinkling a little bit of chaos on top, will give us a rewarding life. He discusses life's multiple fulcrums and how embracing this ideology gives us the ability to cope with the failure and hard parts of life. Steering directly into those parts is where all the juicy and rewarding moments are.
