In life, we all strive for balance with work, family, friends and building rockets (perhaps).
It is like a plate-spinning act we often see in a circus or on stage. The person starts spinning plates and rests them on top of long sticks and keeps them spinning while adding more and more plates.
In life, we attempt to do this. None of us learns it from birth. We learn as we go. And thus, most of the time, some plates that we are trying to spin lose their balance and plop to the ground as we are adding a new spinning plate.
The great thing about life is we can pick up that plate again if we are not too negligent and attempt spinning it with others. If we ignore it, that plate will pack its bags and go live with its mom and dad.
