The Four Burner Stove
In David Sedaris’ New Yorker essay, Laugh, Kookaburra, he talked about the famous stove anaology:
This was not a real stove but a symbolic one, used to prove a point at a management seminar she’d once attended. “One burner represents your family, one is your friends, the third is your health, and the fourth is your work.” The gist, she said, was that in order to be successful you have to cut off one of your burners. And in order to be really successful you have to cut off two.
Which burners have you turned off?
