Anyone can carry his burden, however hard, until nightfall. Anyone can do his work, however hard, for one day. Anyone can live sweetly, patiently, lovingly, purely, till the sun goes down. And this is all life really means.
– Robert Louis Stevenson

It is one of the biggest challenges our industry faces, yet, how we approach it hardly puts us in a position to find solutions. We think it is inaccessible, that it implies a lack of commitment towards our work. We fear that it means compromising our ambitions or become overcome with guilt when we hear those words.
