On Variety and Not Getting Stuck 

Having more variety in your life means you have the option of not clinging so tightly to one thing, or to a few things. So, in a sense, it allows a lighter touch. It is perhaps something like non-attachment, in the Buddhist sense. You can have a looser attitude and approach. This also puts you in a more neutral position, allowing you to react more swiftly and well to things that need your attention. It’s not balance, because balance is ephemeral. It’s more an ever-renegotiated balance, if you want to use the word balance. But the sense I have of this not clinging is also a sense of not thinking so much, and of not getting stuck thinking about something, or stuck doing something.
