"Your ego can become an obstacle to your work. If you start believing in your greatness, it is the death of your creativity." - Marina Abramovic Your ego wants to you 'be something' more, which in turn blocks you from truly seeing what is present.
For years we have heard about work/life balance, this decade's rendition of 'Work Hard, Play Hard(er)' or 'If you do what you love, you will never "work" a day in your life....' Who is kidding who here? Most of us must work to survive in some fashion; food, clothing, shelter, not to mention kids, travel, etc. To be honest, the thought of work/life balance may seem like a joke or unattainable concept to many in the world who are, literally, working to survive.
