You perform better when your thoughts, feelings, emotions, goals, and values are in balance.

The one, who lives life at the speed of light, never slowing down and taking time to develop one's mind or spirit, is obviously out of balance. 
Likewise, the one who lives one's life in a habitual rut, never experiencing any of the things that this world has to offer, is equally out of balance. 

The secret of a balanced life lies somewhere in between these two extremes. It is not hyper-active and it is not semi-comatose.

The one who lives life in hyper-overdrive is sacrificing spending quiet time alone with one feelings and meditating. 

Life is constantly going here and there, almost as if one do not understand how to slow down or is afraid to be alone with thoughts and feelings. 
To purposely ignores the quiet side of one's life and always needs outside stimulation to keep the mind occupied.

On the other hand, those who never goes out, who wants to live life more like a Buddhist monk, hidden away in a cave, is sacrificing the fun and excitement of life, spends too much time on the quiet, spiritual and mental side of life at the expense of experiencing all that life has to offer. 

This becomes a habit and it can get to the point to almost anti-social and does not want to be around other people. 
One is intense about one meditation time and reading, but has let other parts of life fall by the wayside.

The famous author, Zig Ziglar, wrote,

 “I believe that being successful means having a balance of success stories across the many areas of your life. You can’t truly be considered successful in your business life if your home life is in shambles.” 

If you find that you are failing in one area of your life, while other areas are very successful, the cause may be that your triangle of life is out of balance.
