Bob's Thoughts Bob's life-juggler theorum

We start life as a singular existence: Ourselves = a single point in time (conflict within, our competing 'wants')...requiring bending others to our will (our 'wants') - unitary focus.

work-life• From that we expand into preparing ourselves for and committing ourselves to our own life-support system (education / career, viz., income generation): Unwillingly or with great motivation = two points, a straight line (conflict between the 'wants' of ourselves and our 'needs' – providing for our future)... requiring our manageable twofold focus.

• Then, as we blossom into fuller adulthood, we seek out (or acquire) the intimate company of another: Unwillingly or with great motivation = three points, a triangle (conflicts between our 'wants and needs', those of a career, and those of our partner)... requiring our manageable threefold focus.

• Predominantly, we expand into a close, family-type relationship embracing the care and future development of our child/ren: Unwillingly or with great motivation = four points, a square (and the sometimes disastrous conflicts between our subsuming 'wants and needs', those of a demanding career, those of an increasingly 'lonely' partner, and those of our growing child/ren)... requiring our manageable fourfold focus.
