I struggle with this word, in many senses of the definition.

I actually have very little physical balance.

But professionally, I struggle.

I’ll burn myself out working on the process.

Although I take breaks, I write this blog, I spend time away from it.

It doesn’t distract from my inability to detach.

But not only that, also know where the buck stops.

It’s definitely hard, when it’s just routine, and the routine is fruitful.

But is it sustainable?

That’s something I’ve been asking myself.
