There is a popular concept called the four burners theory. I first learned about it back in 2016 from an article James Clear wrote on the topic.
The idea here is pretty good and makes a lot of sense - we only have so much time and energy we could dedicate to these four burners, and we can’t possibly crank all four to the max. At least, not for long.
But, I’ve been thinking lately:
The four burners theory doesn’t just apply to work-life balance, it also applies to lifting.
