On June 15 my mentor and I discussed balance. I’m working myself too hard, which I physically cannot maintain. One cannot come in early, work late, not eat lunch, and maintain that work style for the long term. He mentioned a struggle with eating lunch as well, so I challenged both of us to eat lunch at least 4 times a week. And he challenged me to plan out my day and get done what I can in a normal work week. Of course, I should work diligently, efficiently, and effectively, and I can always improve, but I can’t push myself beyond If there’s more than that, I shouldn’t expect myself to do all of it. After all, I am human.
