It’s the ever-present dilemma (or at least it’s seemed that way in my life): happiness or greatness?
Is it better to sacrifice balance (ie, health, relationships, simple pleasures, sanity…) in order to achieve greatness and make an enormous impact?
Or to send out smaller ripples, maybe even pass into obscurity, but live a humane, balanced life?
And is that even the question?
The recent death of Steve Jobs, whose life and work impacted the entire planet, has me waxing philosophical.
Oh, and btw, yes, the video is longer than usual today, but part of that is due to a musical surprise starting at 6:28. Hint, hint.
Tell me: what would you choose, worldwide impact, or a softer existence? Or do you think they’re even mutually exclusive? Share your thoughts in the comments.
