    I’ve enjoyed this series, thank you for sharing!

    This episode really helped me to realize that prioritizing the development of one aspect (H, A, or T) over another can be ok, or even healthy.

    In my own case, a few years ago, I had done of lot of transcendence work with meditation, and I gained a lot in terms of my perspective and values. But over the past year or so, I haven’t been meditating as much, and I’ve been giving myself a hard time about it.

    Simultaneously, I’ve also been putting a lot of work into achievement, perhaps due in part to an unexpected career change…but also perhaps due to realizations I’ve slowly come to following my transcendence work that my current career trajectory wasn’t going to result in as good of an outcome for myself as I would like.

    This episode helped me realize that it’s ok not to work heavily on transcendence right now, I don’t need to criticize myself for not meditating “as much as I should”, for example. That it’s ok to focus on achievement for now, and I know that I’ll be back to heavier commitment to transcendence work at some point in the future.
