David Foster Wallace's Vision of a Balanced Life

... and it's a beautifully simple one, rooted in everyday happiness.  Young writers should study this carefully:

What Balance Would Look Like

- 2-3 hours a day writing

- Daily exercise

- 2 nights/week spent with other friends


DFW's list for a balanced life continues on from there.

This is taken from D.T. Max's new biography of Wallace, available here.  I'll be reading and will report back this fall.

Read a review here.
