I know a lot of artists that feel like they have to be all-or-nothing when it comes to their careers, and that taking time to find balance in their lives means taking time away from their career goals. Ambition is one thing — and it’s a great thing, at that — but always putting your career before your life will definitely lead to eventual burnout. And when you’re burned out, your career takes a hit. So, really, you’re not helping your career by going at it nonstop. You need balance, plain and simple.
