Polarity In Life
by Donald Yadusky

We are often taught in life to do two things that are the exact opposite of each other. For example, to be able to do more than one thing at a time is considered important. To type and talk at the same time helps workers in telecommunications. Chefs put several flavors in their recipes. Some people study with music playing on the radio. The news screen on television often has split screens and moving printed messages along the bottom of the screen while the newscaster speaks.

To focus and do only one thing at a time is also taught to be important. We focus on one thing at a time while engaged in hobbies, art, competitions, games, and during test taking for example.

Somehow the pendulum of life never stops in the middle. It seems to swing from one extreme to the other.
