The concept of life balance is an illusion.  We’re led to believe that somehow we can spend equal time in all the various areas of life – family, work, spouse, health, friends, and community.  That’s just not possible.  And even if it were, I doubt it would create the joy and fulfillment that it promises.

Rather than seek life balance, we should strive for intentional imbalance.  There will be times in life – seasons if you will, when you decide to spend more time in one area over another.  There is nothing wrong with that.  The key is that it is intentional, and by design.
