For me, the ability to focus can be a huge strength and weakness at the same time. I'm so easily distracted that sometimes [often times] it is difficult to keep at one thing for any given length of time.
But on the flip side, I can get so wholly focused on one pursuit that everything else gets shoved to the side during that period.
I've heard so many people talk about how balancing the two extremes is healthy. Is it really? Is it even realistic?
When I back up enough to see the complete picture, it seems the average of the two extremes I frequently swing between must net some sort of balance as a whole. [Or at least I like to take comfort in telling myself this]
For example, right now I'm in a season of trying to establish some consistent spiritual disciplines in my life. I love the extra closeness that I'm feeling toward God and often want to shove all my chips to the center of the table & cry "all in!" But I'm concerned that in doing so I might quickly grow tired [or worse yet, bored] and wonder instead if I should pace myself more like a distance runner.
Are there focused "seasons" people grow through? Does this thinking apply to organizations as well? Am I supposed to feel bad when a particular season has run its course?
Just some late night musings.
