Find balance, live in the present, and appreciate what I have
I’m striving to find balance in my life. My current strategy is rapidly pushing me towards burning out and not sustainable. I consider myself successful but nowhere near where I’d like to be. I’m well traveled, love science and not particularly spiritual. I have a wonderful family (a wife and 3 kids). Even though I consider myself a fun dad I live in constant fear that I’m going to regret that I didn’t spend enough time with my kids. My wife will occasionally remind me of this. I started my own company last year and this has exacerbated my anxiety. I feel trapped but have a great opportunity on my hands. My lack of balance has become painfully evident as a result of the sheltering at home from the pandemic.
