The Case For and Against Striving

From childhood, we’ve been urged to strive, to live up to our potential.
Too, a counterargument is often made—for work-life balance. The claim is that it’s healthier and certainly it's more family-friendly.

But rarely is an argument made for doing the minimum, the least you can get away with. Yet a perhaps not-foolish argument can be made for that.

So in my PsychologyToday.com article today, I make the argument for maximum striving and then for minimum. Sure, it’s possible that you’ll come away opting for the golden mean but perhaps not.
