‘Round Midnight’ – A Marker for Balance

(a 1944 jazz standard by pianist Thelonious Monk)

Where you are ‘round midnight’ may tell you something about your life and career. As a manager, it is a given that you have a lot on your plate. Round midnight there are many possibilities-you are still working, you are worrying about work, you want to sleep but can’t, you are out partying, you are sleeping soundly, you are relaxing.

Life gets out of balance easily. Boundaries are essential. Fantasy is a killer-you must face the realities and truth of your responsibilities, if you are to find balance.

Where do you want to be ‘round midnight’?
