The importance of balance in business

The cliché says that the world is not made up of black and white issues but shades of grey. As with most clichés there is an element of truth, a truth that one only truly accepts as you reach a certain stage of maturity. The saying is valid in all aspects of life but I have come to recognise that it is also extremely applicable in business. In business, however, I would think that it is normally referred to as "balance".
