It promises to be a cold day in Stockholm, but looking at today’s schedule I’ll have no problem staying warm. They’re busy weeks, my days up here, and that’s obviously how I like them. What would be the purpose otherwise?

I’ve been thinking a lot about balance lately, and how to make work fit with interests, dreams outside of your job, and personal life. Traveling like this, being away from your home for most of the workweek, is both good and bad. It gives focus, because when I’m in Stockholm I’m working (a lot) with 24HR and similar tech related projects. When I’m home I’m not, at least not to the same extent. The problem arises with fringe projects, like my fiction writing for example. What time will that cut in to? How do you balance that sort of thing – and there are plenty – if it’s something you need to do both in your work location as well as in your home?

You just do, I guess, it it’s important enough. Thought in progress, to be continued I’m sure.
