What do you think about life balance?

Over the past couple days, I’ve spent a lot of time working on my blog, bondChristian.com. By “a lot of time” I mean almost every free moment I have.

Everything else has gone into stand by. I haven’t showered in two days. I haven’t eaten well. I’m dehydrated. I’ve stayed up past 3:30 am three night in a row. And I’ve pretty much dropped out of social interaction in the “real” world.

Sounds pretty disastrous, I know. But I’ve found I do this sort of thing fairly often. I’ll get into a certain mode, I’ll totally focus for a couple days – maybe more – and in that time, I’ll completely forget about everything else.

Thing is, I love it. I feel fantastic. Probably today or tomorrow, I’ll slow down but for a while here, I’m in blog launch mode.

What do you think about this?

Right now, it works fairly well because I’m a single guy. That frees me up to be flexible to focus on one project like this.

But is this dangerous? Will it lead to bad habits in the future, habits that will be too difficult to break? Your thoughts?
