The best and safest thing is to keep a balance in your life, acknowledge the great powers around us and in us. If you can do that, and live that way, you are really a wise man.
Euripides (484 BC - 406 BC)

I had a TL back when I was an agent that said one thing is needed to succeed in his team, BALANCE. He thought us to balance our metrics, making sure that we do not leave out other metrics while we try to improve on the critical ones. I use this ideology in all the teams i have handled.

Every time someone from work rants about stuff, I always say " God is a God of Balance, he will balance things out. Balance is also the reason why Albert Einstein believes in life after death. He said that the energy in the universe is constant, one energy will constantly transform in another form of energy. That is why he believes that when we die, we just transform in another form of energy, our souls. Balance. Even the Yin and Yang is about two opposing forces that compliment each other. Again, balance...

So what does that have to do with me. Well, the reason why I believe so much in balance is because everyday I feel that God is balancing me out. If I have a very shitty day at work, I will have a great day at home. If I feel great at work, something would go wrong at home.

Today was a good example. I had a great day at work. Friday, last shift. I was able to do all of the things I needed to do. I had a great time, extra ordinary day, people are in high spirits and stuff. After a great day, I went home to my wife, talked and ate my baon ( it really defies the term "baon" if you can't eat at work ), and my wife slept while I opened my PC to dust the parts. After putting them back together, NO POST NO VIDEO. Meaning, the thing has power but nothing on the screen but beeps. I tried to troubleshoot it, but to no avail. I decided to bring it to a computer shop. I carried the case under the blistering heat of the 12 o'clock sun. and then there was no trike, they had a meeting. So I walked out of the subdivision, and walked some more to the shop, carrying my PC, at 12 0'clock noon. Great. The damn thing was fixed and that is why I am now blogging.
