A friend of mine was making a presentation. She said a lot of good things, but I have to tell you, it was the quote that is apparently from a CEO that spoke volumes to me. I just knew I had to share it with you.
“Imagine life as a game in which you are juggling some five balls in the air. You name them – work, family, health, friends and spirit and you’re keeping all of these in the air. You will soon understand that work is a rubber ball. If you drop it, it will bounce back. But the other four balls – family, health, friends and spirit are made of glass. If you drop one of these, they will be irrevocably scuffed, marked, nicked, damaged or even shattered. They will never be the same. You must understand that and strive for balance in your life.”
Yes, indeed well said. But beware of the person who thinks work is also family, health, or friends, or even spirit! That person will shatter when one of those balls does, too.
